My betta needs help please!!

My betta isnt very active all the time but recently he just got lazier. he usually swims in his tank slowly all the time but now he is laying at the bottom of it all the time.There are no physical symtoms to be seen but ive just treated him with ocean free general aid in case. could it be a cause form internal bacterias? what medicine should i buy? please help, all comments are appreciated. i have some pictures of him too.
