nvm false alarm

ok i went to check on my guy I thought he was sleeping at first then i noticed him breathing kinda heavy so i thought it was something to do with his water i added a tiny drop of prime just to make sure everything was ok. he got up went to the surface to get a breath of air and then swam towards me but not in his usual manner but in a rather slow and sluggish pace almost like he was struggling. then he went back to a leaf and just sat there like he just died or something.... i panicked and hit the tank just make sure he was ok and he flew into a corner but then he just sat there again in the same coma type behavior. I did a partial water change today cause i had vacuumed out the gravel and only gave him one pellet today cause i was worried he hasn't pooped yet

update: ok cancel the alert i think he was just a very sleepy little guy cause now he's swimming around normally but i think i just ruined our friendship by banging on the tank. cause now he doesn't even wanna follow my finger around i think he's mad at me. its 3 am and we both need to be sleeping. i woke him so rudely :(

i gave him a bloodworm for compensation

Thanks good that he's back to his normal self!
When my betta wasn't doing good I got him a floating toy plant, and I totally forgot I put it in there so I walked in the room all I saw is something floating at the top and my heart sunk! I was like noooo, he died in 30 mins?!?! lol -phew- just the toy plant..
