Listless Otocinclus catfish

BlueGlofish

Hello, I've noticed my Otocinclus is very inactive. I know this fish is supposed to be active most of the time but mine is just sitting on a branch of my plant in my aquarium and he has been sitting there all day. His chest is still moving so he isnt dead. Please help if you can. Thanks!

How long have you had it and does it have anything that it will eat?

I would check his stomach area for a depression if any

Does it have plenty of algae to eat? does it have at least 5 freinds?
Is the temperature stable and staying above 75 degrees? they can live in cooler water as low as 72 degrees but it might be lazier in cooler water.

How do you tell if a fish is depressed by looking at his stomach?
