Unhappy Not sure what this could be

My betta, Garibaldi, is acting off. He is more lethargic, seeming to sleep a lot, when the aquarium is tapped (sometimes the only way I can get him to move), he flips out and swims around for a moment crazy-like, then he settles. Sometimes, he seems to just list off to the side as thought tilting onto his side slightly while resting. He seems to be almost gulping as well.

His fins look fine, I see no oddness on his skin, even when I shine a flashlight on him to check for any reflective-ness. I am more than a little worried at this point.

Can anyone help please? Tell me what, if any, additional information you need, and I will share.

What's the temperature? How many gallons is the tank? And when do you do water changes?

80 degrees Fahrenheit, 2.5 with a mini-filter, once a week.

Scratch that...I saw a single white dot between his fins on his back. Possible Ich?
