Exclamation Please help, my new betta is acting strange :(

hey, iv been cycling my 13 litre tank for 7 days and have had the water chemically tested in 2 different pet shops, both say the levels are fine. however i bought a new betta yesterday, he was fine at first when i put him in the tank, but later in the evening he begin to act strange, he was laying on the bottom of the tank on his side, what does this mean? iv transferred him into a different tank with water which has been treated with tap safe, ammonia and nitrite remover. he doesnt seem to be able to swim to the surface. please help :( :(

What kind of stuff is already in your 13 liter (roughly 3.5 gallons)? Other than the chemicals, what was the water temp and what sort of water treatment did u use to de-chlorinate?

in the tank there is a filter/aerator, water heater (current temp 27 degrees), gravel, and thermometer. the water treatment i have used to de-chlorinate is called tap safe, and to remove ammonia and nitrites i have used a pet shop brand of weekly water cleaner
