My betta looks...unwell.

My 3 year old fish looks mopey, sad, and sick. I don't know whats wring with him though.
He lays on the bottom of his tank and swims up only to eat and blow angry bubbles.....

Any help?
I don't really know what to do!
I'm sure that if I were to take him to the vet, they would send me home....

Theres a form in the Betta disease section that you should fill out... also, it could just be old age for the little guy. :/

I think so, if kept in the right conditions with lots of room to excersize, I heard of bettas living 5 years. It's possible :D
