Alright so here's the story, I am a first time Betta ower and I have had this fish for about a week, his name is oscar and I am absolutally in love with him.
So today I cleaned his bowl for the first time and I wasn't really paying much attention to what I was doing because I was trying to do 30 things all at once, and I think I made his water too hot, because once I finished cleaning his bowl and replaced the water and put in the conditioning treatment I put him in and he immediatally started thrashing around in the water, running into the walls and such, I got scared and once I realized the water was too hot I threw him in some cooler water and cleaned the tank again and replaced it with water with the correct temprature this time.
But for the first few minutes when I took him out he looked pale, like he was turning white instead of his usual light blue. his color soon returned after that and then once he got all situated back in his bowl he became very jumpy, like someone put something down on the table he was on he'd start swimming around very fast and trying to jump out of the tank and such, just seeming very agitated even if anyone touched the bowl. He never flared or anything though.
And now he's just kind of laying at the bottom of the tank, he usually would be near the bottom before all this happened but he's actually looks like he's LAYING on the bottom not floating at the bottom like he usually does. I'm not sure if maybe he got burned because the water was too hot, I would guess that the water was maybe body temprature but not steaming. He responds a little when you tap on his bowl but he doesn't get agitated like earlier.
When I first got him if you talked to him or tapped on the bowl he would move around the bowl now he doesn't really seem like he wants to leave that spot. I'm so worried about him and I just hope he's okay, can anyone tell me if maybe he's in shock or something? or if there's anything I can do to help him???
