Change his water.
Check the Water to see if nitrates are right.

Maybe it is just me...but it almost looks like a fake fish or dead... something about the eyes..........but maybe it is the photo or just the story in general that makes me question...are you a troll..........

Make sure his waters heated. Keep up the water changes. Can you upload a video? that may help.

1. Does he swim normally?
2. Is his tail as long as it always was? (no fin-rot)?
3. What do you feed him?
4. How big is his tank?

Just pretty much say everything you can about him and his life. Heater? Size Tank? Decorations? Food... ect.

allright here are some photos


in this photo you can see the food i feed him



i think i got a pretty good angle of him above



and i know he looks weird thats why im so worried i found a fizzle tablet for cleaning water im going to do that in a few and im going to get a plant or somthing from my cousin for him to chill out around and also i will by a heater for him should i put some salt in the tank? and i beg you not to just stop helpping me because you think im trolling or making this up and yes his tail i think was bigger when i first got him but when i first got him he was blue and yes he swims normal he goes up top for oxegyn and down to chill out i guess i havent been taking the best care of him an dfor that im sorry to him. how he survies in oregon witch is pretty cold without a heater amazes me my light for him burnt out a few years ago but he still lives

When you take the pic put your hand in it w/ a peace sign. That way we'll know. But I'd say you have one healthy fish right there to have survived. Did you change his water yet?
