Really IMPORTANT New Betta Clamped Fins

Yesterday I brought home a betta for my 6 gallon filtered and heated aquarium.He has had clamped fins since I brought him home although he was alright in the pet shop.He also only eat a tiny piece if flake food this morning while spitting it out yesterday.I treated him with Revitaliser Tonic about 15 mins ago.I need a reply really quickly thanks.

Hi, What is the temp of the tank? Is it cycled? What are the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate readings? Since you just bought him yesterday I wouldn't worry yet; he's probably just stressed from the change of environment. It's normal for fish not to eat for the first few days of getting them. Just monitor the water quality and if that's ok, just give him some time. Also maybe try some Betta pellets if he doesn't like the flakes; it's possible what you're feeding him is different than what he's used to as well.
