Unhappy Please Urgent Help!!

I have had my betta for 4 months now. He is my first betta. For a while his tails have been curled but I have left it alone because he was happily swimming and eating normaly. Lately, his tails have been splitting and his color is not as bright. He is eating a lot, but hasnt pooped, looks bloated, in his stomach area, floats on his side, lays on the bottom, and has trouble swimming. I have tried to treat him with Maracyn for 5 days but it has had no productive results. What should I do?! Please help, this is my only pet and I wouldn't want him to pass away. He is stored in a 5 gallon tank with a heater, I have currently moved him into a 1 gallon tank to try to keep him healthy again. Any advice or ideas on his illnes?!

I think maybe it would be better to take him to a veteran for help, he seems pretty sick and needs help. I hope he gets better x

You can also Private message oldfishlady or sakura8 and they will be able to tell you what you should do. It will also help if you fill out the form that is stickied near the top of this forum, that way the people here can help you find out what is wrong and how to fix it.

Also, he may be constipated, maybe lay off the food for a while.
