"I received two bettas about a week ago as a birthday gift. Their names are Dolce and Gabbana. Dolce is Dark blue and Gabbana is a deep red. Both fish seem to be doing really well. They are active and playful. This morning I bought some frozen baby brine shrimp to give to them as a treat. Gabbana ate hers right away, but Dolce didn't recognize the little squirts form the dropper (I used it to squirt them in the water) as food, so he didn't eat it. A couple of hours later I noticed that he was acting bonkers! He keeps darting up and down in his 1 gallon container over and over again. I can't really tell if he's scratching, because he does it on the side with the plants and the one without any decor. He doesn't have any signs of ick or anything on his body or fins. His appearance is completely normal as far as I can tell. I thought maybe he found some baby brine at the bottom and was searching for more, but I moved him into an emergency container with clean, treated water (aquarium salt and dechlorinator) just to be sure. But, he is still doing it! It's freaking me out! I am wondering what's wrong with him! By the way, my other betta Gabanna still seems completely normal. HELP!"
