I put my oldest boy Ichiru in his side of a divided ten gallon a little more than a week ago. But he still has yet to perk up back to his normal self. no more bubble nests or the usual perkier what not. He doesn't show any signs of stress or disease he just seems unhappy. I already have my other betta boy ready to go in the other side this coming weekend but Im concerned with Ichiru's mellow behavior and he has some possible tail nibbling going on.

His tank is 2 degrees cooler ( at a oh so chilly 78) than his old tank, but Im not sure if that would make him sad. BUt he does seem to prefer water in the 80'ish range. But my heater is pre-programmed for 78. So I don't know how I could fix that unless I put a weaker heater in along but I dont know if thats safe.o.0

Is this type of behavior normal for being put into a bigger tank? I have it with several leafy plants and a decorative pot along with his log and leaf, but like I said he isn't using anything frivolously. Just sitting at the bottom looking depressed. Anything I can/ should do?

Hmm my heater heats up to 10 gallons but I dont think its adjustable and I dont have the funds for another heater since I spent the money to get that one... Hmmm this is a predicament! Im not too fond of taking things back and Im not sure I still have the reciept. If I cant find the reciept can I put my smaller heater(that heats up to 3 gallons) in there? WOuld that make it warmer?

I have a lot of foliage in there, which he seems to approve of so Im not sure its the space bothering him. Although maybe I should try taking out a plant and see if he likes it better?

Hmmm if I could do two heaters that would be rather convenient but I dont know if it would work safely.
