    Hi, in the last few days he started to show lethargic behavior. he comes to eat but he sits alot during the day, he never did this befor. He is in a 50L with filter and a heater.

    water P are 0,0,5 , he is alone there. he also has a bit of rigged fins

    we moved a few days ago and it started after that,s it might be beacuase of that but im worried beacuse it dosent get better for a few days

    What do you reccomend to do? should i start a treatment?

    How old is he? Older bettas become lethargic and its a sign they will pass soon. Also are the water parameters different in your new home than the last one? (i.e. hardness, TDS) This could also be affecting him. I can't really see anything on the video other than he is resting on his ornament. I would hold off on any medication as you don't know what the issue is so its not good to just throw meds hoping they will solve the problem.

    If the water parameters (different hardness, TDS) aren't the issue, try doing some WC as clean water is always the best remedy.
