Depressed?

So I think my Fishy 2 is depressed. He is eating still,swims around a bit. But just kinda lays around looking sad. Think he is sad from losing all his tankmates? When my rats run around,they walk around his tank and he perks up then,following them lol. But when I put them back he gets sad again. Anything I can do for him? I dont know how he would do with other kinds of tankmates...I want to move my neon tetras to the 20 long...probably the corys too...I could move Fishy 2 to the 14 in the kitchen....but I dunno....help??

Not really....I was thinking of putting him in the 14 with the corys,see how that goes. Maybe he would perk up a bit. My rat cage is near my bed so thats not close enough to his tank. Im sure my ratties would love to be out all the time to keep him entertained lol,but sadly I cant do that. Else I could try him in the 20 long again,with other fish. There would be neon tetras in there though,dunno if he would be nice to them. All I can do is try eh?

I have cories in with my betta and he doesn't bother them other than stalking and chasing.

I'd give it a try. It will keep everyone in shape :)

Yeah....so I think Ill try him (once I move the fish around LOL) in the 14 with the julii corys. He may not be too nice to tetras and pencilfish. So hopefully he gets along with the juliis. Keep him happy and entertained.

So....i played a lil laser pointer tag with him...he enjoyed that i think...then i plugged in my glade light show thingy,original Fishy (rip) seemed to have liked that...he swam around a bit when i first put it on,now he is back to just sitting on the bottom. But he did perk up a lil. I probably will still move him to the 14 with the corys,see how he does with them.
