I noticed that you don't have a temperature reading, and you answered no to having a heater? You may want to invest both of those things, if not at least a thermometer; they're only a few dollars. I would get one that suctions to the side of the tank, not an adhesive one. But a heater is a must.. please keep us updated. You could use tap water with a water conditioner. I'm not sure how well bottled water works. Just remember that if you use any tap water whatsoever, you must use a conditioner.

I hope someone else comes along to answer your questions too, and I hope he gets to feeling better.

No I have no idea why he is acting like this. It's so weird I'm going go to the Petstore and see what they say.

Can you maybe dig up some change, and get a little thermometer? A reading would help out a lot.. I've had to do this before. If there isn't some sort of solution, and this isn't anything against you, but maybe think about rehoming him? It's a hard decision, but sometimes it's for the best. I hope they can help you out, but pet store employees usually aren't very qualified to advise you on how to treat bettas. Or any type of fish, for that matter..
