Unhappy Help!!!!

ok so im moving back home and i had to put both my bettas in their cup that i bought them in.... the trip back home is 3hr and they have been in their cup for about 2hr now as i wait for my ride to come.... Im worried that my delta might not make it because he has turned pale and he is not moving to much... he just hangs in the middle.... Will he make it for another 3 hrs??? im really worried and feel bad for him since he is used to being in a divided 10g tank... i did a water change in his cup to make sure he had clean water

erm.. I hope he hangs in there! There's not much you can do. Betta's are shipped daily in tiny bags. If you have any stress coat add a bit to help him calm down. Good luck!

I think it's best to keep things dark, warm, and as stable as possible.

Try not to slosh anything around and avoid bumps.

Sounds like he's stressed and scared.

thanks so so much for the wishes.... my room stays at 75 so the temp id good and my room is dark right now... i will put them in a 1g tank each when i get home for just a little more space and them at night move them into the 10 g once its set up again... i hope they do make it it seems like he just fell asleep because he is just sitting still in the middle of the tank he moved when i got close so i knew he was asleep

They should be OK, as long as they are kept warm.
