my female betta

I have a female betta. I have had her for about 9 months. Up until about a month ago she has been doing really good. But then all of a sudden she stopped eating and wont come out of the weeds. She has also lost most of her color. I am always checking to see if she is still alive. We moved at about the same time this happened. Could this be a reason. Also there is a little algae. I keep her in a 10gallon tank with an algae eater, a glowlite tetra, a red tailed shark, and a golden wonder killifish. They have always gotten along. All of the other fish did really good in the move. If anyone has any suggestions as to what could be wrong please let me know. Thank you.

Did you let your gravel or filter media dry out during the move? Have you tested your water for ammonia or nitrites? Have you done a water change lately?

Just trying to hit some of the high points.

it could be stessed from the move. did you transfer her alot? or slosh around the tank?
what do you feed her and what is your water changing schedual?

just a note: glowlight tetras do Way better in groups. you should get a couple more to have at least 3.
