So I got my fish, Sola, a few weeks ago. She was originally living in my dorm room at school. I use Top Fin water conditioner to treat the water and kept her in a 1.5 gallon bowl with 2 fake plants (grass and something tall for her to sleep on). She was fine, active, and happy. admittedly the water was too cold but she was okay. I then had to transport her (2 weeks after i bought her) to my house. about a 5 hour drive which she survived in the sup that I bought her in. once she got here i set the tank up the same way I had it at school and bought her a heater. plopped her in and she appeared fine for the first few days (~4). 2 days ago i did maybe a 2/3rd water change because it looked dirty and now she just sits ontop of the heater a majority of the day and doesn't want to eat. I've been able to get her to eat a pellet a day, maybe. I did wipe the inside of the bowl while she was in it (bad, i know). She was very healthy until recently. does it sound like i stressed her to much and could this be a cause of that or could it be the water conditions. I wont be able to test them for a few days as it is Christmas eve. I want to move her into a 10 gallon tank with some (5) neon tetras (and a filter as she does not have one right now) but i'm worried that the move will be too stressful for her.
