Hello I just got a new Betta this past Friday. He is a doubletail butterfly cambodian. He is looking kind of sad/ill. I realize that he may simply be adjusting to the new environment, but this seems pretty extreme in my opinion.
5gallon planted tank
0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 0 nitrate, 7.6 pH
Dosing CO2, flourish comprehensive 1x weekly, iron 2x weekly, equilibrium every few water changes (washington has very soft water)
There is a filter
Tank is heated, usually sits between 75-77
Other inhabitants include 2 african dwarf frogs and a tiger nerite snail, he does not bother them
There is java moss, a windelov, 2 anubias, and some wisteria. Eco-complete substrate
I feed him hikari betta pellets, and occasional bloodworms. He does not come to the top for food, but will eat the pellets if he happens to be at the top when I feed him. He will eat bloodworms off of tweezers.
He has been this way since I got him. When I was acclimating him he was so lively and curious inside the bag and now he is just depressed.
His overall appearance looks fine - no clamped fins, no weird residues, scales are all flat.
Should I be worried?
Edit: I would like to add that this Monday I am going home (I live in dorms) and will be retrieving my dad's old fish bowl - about 1.5g. I plan on making it a little planted bowl that is nice to look at but if needed I can transfer my betta to this bowl even though it obviously isnt as great as a 5g.
I have a spare heater for the 5g, which is currently being heated by a betta bowl heater. I've got my eye on a small filter as well.
Edit2: I now see he has clamped fins.
He's laying on wisteria now after being chased by a frog. I may go grab my bowl today and just try to be home before 4pm since I have work at 7... I derno. Maybe I'll go buy a bigger bowl at the LFS.
