I picked up a new betta last week and he hasn't been doing too well. His symptoms are making me think there's more going on than stress. I've tried to add as much details as I can think of here... Problem: Over the last week he hasn't been moving very much, has been unresponsive, he only eats once every couple of days and a couple of days back he had big chunks of slime coming off his body. No white patches, bumps or raised scales. I've added a dose of Blue Planet Multi Cure (at the advice of the pet store) to the tank which helped with the slime problem, but he's still not really moving around. Water parameters: Ammonia, nitrites and nitrates = 0, temp = 25 degrees celsius, ph = 7.2 Tank size: 24 litres, been set up for 10 days. Equipment/Decor: 3 x silk plants, gravel substrate, cave ornament, small sponge filter with an Aqua One 2500 air pump, adjustable heater, thermometer and some Anacharis which is floating. Water care: 25% water change last night when dosing the Multi Cure. I am doing 2-3 x 25-50% water changes per week until the tank is cycled. I'm using Seachem Prime and Seachem Stability. Acclimatisation: Iacclimatised him by removing water from his cup with a medicine syringe, and replacing this with tank water - this took around 25 minutes. Feeding: One Nutrafin Max pellet twice daily (I cut the pellet in half so he can get it in his mouth). Is it just a case of wait and see if he will settle in and become more active in time? Strangely he was really active when I got him and seemed more comfortable being in a cup... as soon as he went into the tank he stopped moving. Yesterday he was so bad that even when I netted him he didn't react, and he was twitching a lot and unable to swim :-/ He can swim today but is still looking very stressed. Have I done something wrong?
