Ace is sick!

I'm unsure of what happened here. I got home from school and he seemed a little lethargic, but he still cam to the front when I went to the tank. A few hours later, I went to feed him and he was in the corner not moving and breathing heavily. As I watched he sank onto his betta hammock. He appeared to be dead and I watched for a little longer and he darted back to the surface for air, only to fall back down again. After this I put him in a cup floating inside the tank with a few cm's of water so he can breathe easier and some stress coat. I'm really unsure of what's wrong with him so anyy inf would be appreciated!

EDIT: He survived the night, but is still acting the same.

Complete and add the sticky info sheet found at the top of this section....The more detailed info the better we can help....Also add a pic...

Right now-if you haven't already-check the temp to ensure it is within range and make a 50% water only change-dosing the dechlorinator for the full volume-turn out the light-dim lit quiet location-hold food for now...Once we get more info we can go from that point.....
