Okay so I have had my tank for about 3 or 4 months and Thomas bubbles has always been active and social, but for the past week he is just laying at the bottom and rarely swims around. He still eats great, I cycle the water 20% every week in his 2.5 gallon tank. I have tried to give him a ping pong ball to play with for boredom but he just doesn't seem his self. He doesn't look like he has ich,velvet,or fin rot. The only questionable physical condition I see is maybe is top fin is clamped a little I cant tell. What am I missing. the ph level has been a little high and I have been struggle a little to get it down, but I don't think it has been to high to long to hurt him to bad yet. Could this be the main problem or what should I be trying to do. He is my families only pet, and we love him dearly. Any help is much appreciated.

Check the temperature. Bettas like 78 to 80 degrees F. Colder temperatures make them less active. Good Luck!
