lazy betta

Awhile back i had purchased a crown tail that was doing real well in a five gallon. the five gallon ended up having some hair algae i didn't want to continue dealing with so i ended up moving the guy to my already running 20 gallon with some neon tetras. they don't seem to ever bother one another and ahven't for the last 4-5 months he's been with them. but this past week or so i've noticed the betta being real lazy. only staying slouched up in the corners or edges of the tank. his fins are clamped slightly so i'm not sure. the water is upkept etc and they're all fed either flake food or frozen blood worms. every other day i try and squeeze the betta some hikari gold pellets.

I would QT him for now and start some daily water changes on him-if the 20g has a strong filter it can wear them out fighting the current especially with large/heavy fins to carry around-how long have you had him and/or do you know how old he is, what is the water temp-I am sure that is fine since you have tetras in the tank, what kind of water change schedule are you doing on the 20g?

Ya know I was thinkingnit was the current too. As I have an aquaclear 50 I think it is on it? Temp is 77-78.5. I turned it down all the way a couple nights ago. Do 20% changes a week
