Pictus catfish

My oldest pictus about a 2 years old has stopped being so active unlike my other pictus catfish. I was wondering is this due to age or are there other reason for him being lazy apart from at feeding time. He looks fine but just sits under his root.

My eclipse catfish used to be very energetic to and is now about 2 years old. I think when they get old they just get lazy.

We don't get "lazy" when we get old lol, just slowing down. How many fish years in a human year? I know dogs, it's 7, interested to know fish!
