Unhappy Boy

My male Betta Hercules was fine all day, swimming around as normal, flaring up at his neighbor, then all of a sudden he lost all his color and became lethargic. Any idea what could be wrong?
He lives in a 5 gallon tank with live plants and no tank mates. I add stress coat and water conditioner to his water and changed his water yesterday. He has lived with the live plants for months now without a problem, so I don't know what the sudden change is. :/

Is your tank heated? Is it filtered? How often do you perform water changes? What's the usual water temperature? When did you notice his behavior changed?

Did you use a different type of water conditioner?
That's the only thing I can think of...If you are keeping up on water changes regularly
then the ammonia should be low...Did you change his food or placement of the tank in the house?
Maybe he's just having a bad day...If he's the same way/worse after a week we can look into other
