  1. Hey i need help!! One of my butterflies seems to be very lazy. I have had him for a little while now (6-8months) and he/she has always been like this, but the last few weeks its got worse. Im not sure what i can do. It seems to either sit on the bottom or hang out at the top long periods of time. He/she isn't breathing at an unusual rate or gasping at the surface. The other fish are completely normal and don't this. At first i thought maybe it was because of the tail shape these fish have. Because of the shape it must take more effort to swim then my Orandas, causing the fish to have rest periods. But now I'm thinking its not that at all. Its behaving like its bored :/ But i think its something medical now. There don't seem to be any other issues. no fungus, no loss of appetite or rapid breathing.
