Hi, i just got some new bettas for my kids today. I did everything I was suppose to do as far as setting them up. I put 2 of the betta's in a divided tank. One of them , "Prince", is acting strange. He has been laying on the bottom, kinda tilted, then will rush to the top for air, come back down and do the same thing....at times, he will act normal and then seconds later....back to acting strange. He also has been keeping his mouth wide open and seems to be breathing faster than the other fish. What's wrong?
well, against my better judgement, I listened to the pet store. I had a betta when I was 12 yrs old and had him for 2 to 3 years and I never had anything but a tank and rocks and did well by myself. This time I did it their way and well looks like a mistake. The tank he's in is called a "Large Betta Keeper"....the box does not specify the size.....though small.....larger than what he was in to begin with.
oh, ok.....thanks.....I didn't think of the heating pad. He is acting a lot better now. I took the lid off.....does that make any sense? He still has his mouth open though.....maybe that's just him....the other 2 do not do that....he and the other next to him are constantly flaring at eachother.....that's encouraging.
