I cleaned my bettas tank for the first time and he seems to be acting strangly. I acclimated him again. Is he just doing it because taking him out might have stressed him out a bit? Posted via Mobile Device
Nothing should be different. I used the same water, same water conditioner. The water has been sitting in my room so it was already the right temp. I don't know why he's acting so weird Posted via Mobile Device
You float his cup in the new tank until the water in the cup reaches the same temperature as the water in the tank (this can take up to 30 minutes). Then every 10 minutes you remove some of the water from the cup and replace it with tank water. You do this every 10 minutes for 30-45minutes. Then you use a net and release him into the tank. If you do not have a net then dump as much of the water in the cup out as you can and then release him.
My guess is that there was a lot of ammonia in the cup or that the new water was at a different PH.
