The one on the right, yes?
I would say move him, but ask Old Fish Lady (OFL) she'll be better able to help.

I'd suggest at least lowering the water level so it's easier for him to get up to breathe.

Yep the one on the right is it.

He's doing a lot better, he is actually swimming around now, its a miracle he survived after all that trauma. The only problem he has now is it looks like he may have a bladder disorder. every time he swims he gradually sinks down and he is turning to one side a little bit.

some clean water, and a little aquarium salt will help ( 1tbs per 5 gallons) and stress coat if you have it.

I read that fasting a betta for 3 days and putting them on a pea diet could correct bladder disorder. Is that recommended? or is there a better way?

I did add stress coat to his tank today, ill look into getting some aquarium salt.

peas are not very good, try feeding cucumber or blanched lettuce
