New Betta, Possibly Blind?
Yesterday I got a dragon scale (or so they say) Betta from petco, who is now named Franklin. The first day he was pretty lethargic and didn't really do much but swim around the bottom of his new 2.5 gallon tank slowly. This morning I woke up to feed him and my other Betta, Bloop - who is kept in a different 3 gallon tank across the room, and Franklin is face down in his plant not moving so I think "Ill come back and feed him when hes hungry or at least try when hes moving around". Two hours later hes still face down in the plant and think "Maybe before I go to work". An hour later still face down in the plant... tap the side of the glass and he swims around lethargically, not interested in the food at all. Come home from work 7 hours later and hes back face down in the plant again, tap on glass because hes not moving at all - doesn't react, turns on light - doesn't react, thinking "I hope he didn't die on me" I move him with his net to try and move him to where I can look at him, he swims away but barely. He swims to the top of the tank, takes a breath and swims right into the wall, and again, and again. I waved my hand in front of him with no reaction. Put a mirror in front of him, which ALWAYS gets a reaction out of Bloop because Betta fish, and again no reactions. I poke the water right in front of him still no reaction.
Since I just got him I cant really say that hes changed at all color wise, his eyes have a small amount of lighter color around them but other than that he looks healthy. His color is really bright and vivid, his fins look healthy and full and he seems to swim normally.
Does anyone think they can help me out with whats going on?
P.s. I am only about 8 months into owning Bettas and Franklin is my second one, Bloop is a blue delta tail Betta. Franklin is a Red and white dragon scale Betta.
