What do you expect, no fish can live a long happy life a 2 gallon tank. Did you do any water changes at all?

my betta is in a wee little tank (yes, he will be moving into a larger home soon)- but he is used to be in a location in my house where he didn't get a lot of human contact and i thought he was depressed- so i moved him into a busier room in my house, and he is constantly getting attention- he perked up immediately!!!! now he seems happy as can be!

so yes- i think a lonely fish can be "depressed"....so to speak....

He's probably lonely. I recommend moving him to the place in your house where you hang out the most. I keep mine near my desk so I can talk to them.
