Welcome to Fishforum.com.

What size is the tank? Any fish in it? What are your water parameters and temperature?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Temperature and tank size is often the problem here.

The temperature needs to be at 76 degrees or higher, or else bettas get very lethargic.

But what are you water params, bowl/tank size, and temperature?

sorry about that...:(

you didnt put the new fish in a tank of water without acclimating him first did you? if you did, he probably died of shock. either that or he was just in bad condition when you bought him. sorry....

i hope the other goes well!!! pm me if ya got mo questions. :D :D :D 8)
