Help!!

Hi, my betta Fred, is very inactive. I've had him for about three weeks. He is in a fish bowl on my desk so not really any special equipment involved lol. Anyway, Fred just kinda floats around, every now and then he will swim and have his fins spread out but the majority of the time he is wound tight and not moving around. When I put food in his bowl he doesn't eat it right away and it usually floats to the bottom eventually. Any suggestions? My office mate also has a betta as well and hers is constantly swimming around and looks so happy. Any thoughts?

Go to the disease section of the site up top there is a sticky of questions for you to answer. Make a thread in that section answer those questions. There are people there that can help you.
Simple questions for me to ask is, when was the last time you changes the water? What is the water temp? How big is the tank?

Most likely the water is too cold.
