I have a Betta fish in a 10gal/37.5l heated (78°F/25.5°C) tank. I tested my water and it's perfect I also do regular water changes once a week.

My problem is that all my Betta does is sleep and I don't know if there is something wrong with him.

I have another Betta in a different 10 gal aquarium. And he's fine. The sleepy betta does eat but other than that, he stays at the bottom of the tank.

    How long have you had this Betta? Was your tank fully cycled before putting him in? Is there alot of uneaten fish food on the bottom? Is there a chance you purchased him already like this? What did you test for and what were the results? Thanks
