Sushi is acting strange

So, usually he is very social, swims slowly around alot, and recently he has been hiding much more than normal or resting in the leaves, he also is just kinda sitting at the top of the water,won't move even when i am near or put food in. he didn't even pay attention to blood worms! i put the end of a pen in to see if he would move *didn't wanna put in my finger* and he moved quickly away only when it touched him... any ideas? his little bulging stomache isn't worse, but its still there. maybe just him and i didn't notice till now? but im kinda worried

Do you think he could be constipated?

that maybe it... I don't know. How can i treat that, and if it ends up not being it, it will still not hurt him or anything

Constipation can be treated by fasting for a couple of days then by feeding daphnia for a couple days.

Yea i don't know, he gets a water change tonight. Though he seems to be better today. was interested in food, and was in his normal place, rather than hiding. and the bump seems better.
