If Sushi is scratching himself against the rocks or side of the tank, it could be ick. I'm glad they were ok when you got back.Maybe the vacation feeder food made Sushi constipated.

Maybe it did. Ill feed him tomorrow, and then I won't feed him for a day or 2 and see what happens. And hes not scratching himself against the tank or anything, but there ARE 2 white dots near his eye.

It may not be anything to worry about. Just keep an eye on him.

They DO slow down as they get older.

That's true, but he's not that old, I've only had him for 8-9 months. PetCo bettas are usually pretty young when you get them, so by estimation, hes a year old. That's not that old for a betta, but maybe its time for him to slow down?

No, a year isn't that old for a betta. I don't really know what age they start slowing down. Maybe around 2 years or so.

Well, it could have to do with the fact that I had him in a really tiny tank (like 1/4 gallon) for like 3-4 months. I didn't do research before buying him, and after doing research I got him a 1 gallon with a filter and air pump. So maybe he aged faster?

I don't know. Do you mean that maybe he aged faster from living in a small container for awhile? I had a betta that lived in a half gallon for 3 1/2 years.

Yeah, that's what I meant, but I guess that's not the case. He's a pretty big betta, hes about 4-5 inches long including his tail, maybe he's just sluggish because he's so big.
