I just got a new red veil tail betta, Steve, yesterday at a pet store. On the way home in the car, he swam around in a circle (bulldozing the gravel in the process) so fast that a whirlpool formed in the container. I figured he was just nervous since he was a new addition at the pet store the day before. After getting him home and putting him in his new 1/2 gallon tank, he's still attacking the gravel and sides of the tank. It's like he's having convulsions or something. Will he calm down soon, or does he just have a violent personality?
My blue crowntail betta, George, is calm and always happy to see me. He's never violent like Steve. George has been floating to the top of his tank (seemingly involuntarily) since yesterday. The two fish cant see each other. It is a bit odd that they're both
acting strange now, though.
I'm kinda new to owning bettas. Any advice?
