lethargic after move

ok so I moved in with my friend and of course brought my fish with me. Well he was fine before the move but now he has been very slow moving and what not, I'm guessing the change in water might have a big part. I went from using a water softener to not using one. I keep the tank like it should be, 82 degrees etc. Any ideas of what might have caused this or anything I can do to help him?

He may just need more time to adjust to the different water and surroundings. Did you acclimate him to the harder water?

I don't think I did, if I did I probably didn't do it correctly. I'm worried because it's been a month now, a little over actually. I'm wondering if maybe I should go to something like distilled water/bottled water or something.

Do you know how old he might be? It could be age since 1 month should be enough time to get used to a different water source.

um maybe a yr or less. I doubt I had him any longer, unsure how old he was when I got him.
