Exclamation im worried

My fish Monsieur Poisson or Mr. Fish is laying in the bottom corner of his tank. He used to spend a lot of time swimming around. I have no idea what's wrong. I just moved him to a new and much bigger tank. Could that have caused this? I'm not sure he's eaten his food this morning either and he always gets his food right after i put it in the tank. He occasionally will start swimming around for a few min. but then goes right back to laying in the corner. Please help me and my betta!!!

What is the new tank? Is it filtered? Is it cycled? How often are you doing water changes? How long has he been in the new tank?
