Lethargic Betta fish #1
My Siamese fighter has become very lethargic and is just resting at the top of the tank on a plant for the last four days. I have done a big water change ( but always do this regularly anyway) and keep checking the tank temperature is ok. He is still eating a little bit seems to have no energy. I have an air stone in the tank and he had been a tank mate to 6 neon tetras for a year now. I don’t know what to try, he’s usually so full of energy. Can anyone help bearing in mind all the aquariums are closed at the moment 🙄

Re: Lethargic Betta fish #2
How old is he? Bettas don't live long (2 years is typical) and he may be simply suffering old age.
