*cough* could be the water quality...every 2-3 weeks for water changes in a 2.5g? Thats really bad... It needs to be done 1-50% and 1-100% every week! You probably didnt know though :) I'd give the guy some clean water, and then see if he perks up a bit and eats.

I gave him a waterchange and he is swimming a bit more, but he is still not eating. He also just kinda sits there..staring off into space.

yeah I'd definitely say water quality, because once every few weeks is not nearly enough for a 2.5 gallon. Like the others have said, you should make 1 100% and 1 50% change per week!

Glad to hear he's feeling better! Keep up with the water changes and he should start perking up

He is out of direct light. He seems to be just sitting at the bottom of his tank. I feel terrible. ):

My fish is doing the same thing. I've tried aquarium salt twice now. Doesn't seem to be helping. I add water once a week.....about 2 gallons to a 10 gallon tank. I treat the new water with that dechlorinator stuff. My water temp. is steady between 82 and 84 degrees. He has never done this before. It is filtered and heated. I just checked for ammonia and it was 0 ppm which is good. Help needed.

I've had him since October....only about 3-4 months....Never had this problem before. Been doing this for about 2 weeks now.

I would have to agree with everyone else. I think it's the water quality that's bugging Dragon. When I first recieved Acherner from the previous owner he was in a filthy tank and he wasn't moving around or eating. I brought him to my house and placed him in a clean tank and not long after he began to swim around and eat. It seems like he's getting better over time. Good luck!
