I hope it isn't. I was thinking it was his coloring maybe. He was active in his cup at the store. Is there anything I can do if it is ammonia burns? My tank is cycled already so that's a good thing.

Congrats on your new Betta! I am sure that he likes his new aquarium a lot better than the cup!

Just keep his water clean so it doesn't get infected. I know betas are sensitive to medication so I'd stay away from melafix or aquarium salt until a more experienced member chimes in on how to use them safely or if you really need to.

Ok. I'll just keep an eye on him and see what others have to say about meds.

I left him in his cup while acclimating him. I dripped until it was full, dumped half and then dripped it full again. It took 45 mins.
