Concerned!!!

My male Betta has recently changed his habbits, has started to lie on the substrate almost completely on his side for long periods of time! Altho seems to swim ok and eats as usual this new behaviour is becomig a concern. Anyone got any advice?

We need some more information and a pic....

What size tank, water temp, filter, live plants, additives used, how much and how often are the water changes, how long have you had him, has he ever been sick and/or treated, any tank mates, appetite, type/amount food/feeding...any other signs/symptoms...flashing, clamp fins, buoyancy issues....etc.....

All the other inhabitants are doing fine, his fins are not nipped or damaged, he is eating perfectly well and as normal. Bouyancy wise he spends most of his time now draped over th pipe connecting the spray bar, does slip off and falls down to the bottom orf the tank then just works his way back up gradually. Age wise iv had him for just over 8 months, the current in the tank is very low, does gets plenty of sleep by the looks of it, a good 8 hours of darkness in the tank aswell. It just seems like he just cant be bothered anymore to be honest only movin when he has to! Tho he does still play and flirt with the female Bettas ( im aware of peoples concerns of me having them in the same tank but there hasnt been a single problem with them )
