I don't want to think the worst, but Buddha doesn't look so good at all. He hasn't been moving much this morning, and I assumed so because it was dark out, but now it looks like it could just be him.

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? For the first time ever he looks like he's developing a stress stripe.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? He doesn't really move. He was active for some time this afternoon, but both this morning and also just now, he has been floating in the tank. He only moves to get air, and then he sinks down and stays there. He's also been gasping occasionally.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? I noticed his lack oof movement this morning but shrugged it off that it was because he was still full...
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? No. I just did a change though so I hope it might help.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Only fin rot
How old is your fish (approximately)? I've had him for 6 months but he might be around 1 year old
At around 0:07 you can see him floating. He's not moving his fins at ALL, the water is pushing him
At 0:10 he goes up for air
0:16 to 0:25 you can see he's clamped up. Also, he's not moving his left pectoral fin
At 0:40, he stops moving again and lets the water take him over
The rest of the video is basically him right now. I can only get him to move if i move the entire tank, other than that, he won't budge AT ALL. :(
I'm seriously scared..someone please help :(
