    My Betta is usually very trusting of me, but today she began to dart around and hide, seemingly out of nowhere. She even had stress stripes. All, for what looked to be no reason. She's also been hiding a lot since I got home about an hour ago. Thoughts?

    ! I think I may have found the reason. I did a gravel wash yesterday, and I forgot to plug the heater back in! Poor baby's been freezing all day!

    Like nothing ever happened! I came home from dinner, and she swam up to the front as readily as she always does. Here are some photos of her :) Her name is Esmeralda

    Haha, I've forgotten to re-plug filters and heaters in after water changes before. Our poor fish!
    I love your betta. :)
