I've had my betta for just over a week. He's usually swimming around the plants and swimming back and forth across the sides, but lately he's been creeping along the bottom with his head bent towards the gravel like he's looking for food. It's mainly in one part of the tank, and sometimes he ends up completely on his nose with the rest of his body sticking straight up in the air. He's also flaring at the neons. As soon as he sees me though, he's right at the top begging for food. I feed him 2 pellets in the morning, and 2 or 3 at night, plus whatever tropical flakes he eats.
