My adf has been floating for days!

PoppyS

Hi I’m new to fishlore and aquarium stuff. I have one adf in a 10 gallon tank and he is five years old. Recently he started floating at the top and when I gently pushed him down he would float back us as if he could not control it. It’s been like this for a while and I don’t know what to do. I need to do a water change but I think everything else is good. What do you suggest? Please help! Thank you

Is he moving at all (hand moving, eating)? Or just floating always?

He will move some but only on the top of the water. I feed him dried tubifex worms but I was going to try something else and see if it helps. I feed him by hand every other day and he eats.

I believe that he is just getting old.
