Question "Droopy" betta

Hi, I hope someone can help. I have a betta in a 20 gallon community tank. He has been doing well and getting along great with everyone until last week. For one day he was displaying aggression to only the 2 orange fish in the tank (displaying, chasing, nipping) Then he retreated into the rock cave we have in the center of the tank and has been there for 3 days. He doesn't come out and won't eat. This morning we did a partial water change and was able to get him out of the cave. He seems lethargic and, well, "Droopy". I checked all the levels in the tank- no ammonia, ph stable, temperature stable. All the other fish are doing great. Is this a mating cycle perhaps? Should I be worried? This betta is gorgeous- blue, pink and purple! I don't want to loose him!! Thanks for any help you can give me.

Just noticed something. His gills don't look "right". They look enlarged. Something is wrong for sure!

Too late. We went to but an isolation "tank" and when we got home he had passed away. He went downhill very quickly. I am very sad.
