curious mainly

So My fish seems sick, this morning he didn't wake up his usual way, of slowly poking his head out of his log, then seeing me and swimming very fast waiting for food.

He just kind of sat around very lethargic like, thats really all he has been doing.

I just got him a new heater last night since the one I had broke (just stopped working properly). I'm thinking maybe it has something to do with the heater as to why he just lies around, he is all energy when I feed him or he thinks I'm going to feed him.

Anyone have any ideas at all? Everything is ok, temp is at 80-81, 5 gallon tank. Been feeding him pellets, bloodworms every so often.

Again he just started this lethargic lying around this morning. I also don't notice anything out of the ordinary on him, looked at him very close and can't see anything odd or unusual except the lying around part.

Make a large water change to rule out water quality. How long ago did you wake him up? He may still be sleepy. Watch him for the day and see if he developes any more symptoms.

well he has done this twice now, yesterday and today. Where he just lies around pretty much in the morning then when I get home hes fine until he eats then he kinda goes back to the lethargic stage. I plan on doing a full water change tonight just to make sure I clean it real good.
