Question Whats wrong with my Bettas ??

All of my male Bettas are just laying at the bottom. The water is fine(now), they still eat normally, they all look the same as before. Just now they all want to lay around? Are they bored or what? I was gone for a week and forgot to change the water before I left. I think it might just be a water quality issue, but its all changed now. I added some amazon frogbit to their homes, I'v read it helps keep the water clean. Plus while I was out my amazon frogbit grew like crazy

Do you have a heater in their tanks?
The most common cause of a lethargic betta is cold wate.

How long have they been in the clean water? Maybe they are just getting reacclimated?
