Also, fast him for a few days just in case his food is causing him some swimbladder problems.

Is he upside down? Hmm. Have you done a water change recently or changed the temperature of his water?

Yeah I did a water change, He is upside down, he got back upright sometimes, but I think it might just be old age:(

Yes, I do agree with Martinismommy. It isn't looking too promising for him, especially since he is upside down. :(

Lower the water level, and when you clean the tank don't remove him. Epsom salt may relieve it a bit too. Sorry
