I have a male beta for a month now.he was in a small tank and was just upgraded to a tl2 gallon tank with a filter and I also added a heater.i knew he was unhappy in the cold dirty tank he was in so when I got the new tank I was anxious and added him in the new tank within ten minutes of setting it up.i didn't know you wernt suppose to do that.i have never owned a fish.he was very happy the first day but now he is not eating and he is literally laying at the bottom of the tank.his color is also very dull.i am afraid I am slowly killing him because of adding him to the new tank so quickly.i don't know when or how much I should change this water but all I know is my fishy is not ok.could I of put him on the path of death.?? Please help anyone... thank you

  • No one answered if I can kill my fish because I added him to a new tank the same day and didn't wait 24 to 48 hours before adding him

  • That question tells you what you need to know. Look at my answer here which explains how to monitor your water quality. 24 hours and 48 hours are still very low times to add a fish. You will want to read about the nitrogen cycle. You can join us in the chatroom to discuss more issues!
