Hey everyone, can anybody recommend anything to helping out my lethargic dwarf gourami? I’ve had him for almost 8 months and he’s been nicely eating and growing and will still accept food and sometimes get excited and swim around but recently he’s started showing weird behaviour and lying down on some of the amazon swords and some of the tank glass and not really being as lively as usual but he still has moments of it?

On the tank I do weekly water changes (50%) and I am moving everyone in there into a new bigger 65 gal in the next few weeks but do you think it’s worth moving him with the weird state he’s in now?

What does its poop look like?

I wouldn't move it. Leave it where it is and try not to stress it. Make sure the water is good and feed it a bit more often on a variety of foods. See how it goes over the next few weeks. It could be old or have health issues.

It’s poop is sometimes long and stringy and others quite normal, the water is pretty good at the minute I changed it two days ago.. Thank you I’ll try feeding him different foods and hopefully that will help :) thank you for you’re advice!
