Sick fish, or just lazy?

My CT has been hiding between 2 leaves for the most part of the last 2 days, his fins aren't clamped, and when he comes out he swims normally, is eating fine, etc.. and his coloring seems normal, is he sick.. or is he just lazy? Any ideas? He's in a divided tank, so if there's something that may be wrong I'll have to get him out of there right away..

Just an update, I've moved him to my hospital tank, just to be on the safe side, and so I can watch him more closely, and he still seems to be hanging out on a leaf near the top, but it is bedtime, so I'll monitor him tomorrow..

Well, he's been in the hospital tank all night, and he's still just hanging out on his plant near the surface. When he does start to swim he is acting kind of strange, it almost looks like he's shivering. Today's fast day, so I haven't tested his appetite, although i think i may try a pellet to see how he does.

Sorry for you loss!
R.I.P.

I would pay close attention to the betta on the other half of the tank.. Maybe even medicate half dose just to be safe?

I'm so sorry.
My CT doesn't seem to be covered in fungus or anything and he eats well but the swimming thing is spastic and slow and he is always on the leaf too.
Now I'm more worried for Tomato too.
