Senile betta? Depressed betta?

So Squirt used to be the normal one out of all my bettas. And now, it seems like he's gotten a bit...weird. Since I lost buddha, I've been paying more attention to my bettas, and I noticed that Pudge has been looking SO sad and unhealthy, and Squirt has been going a little nuts.

He will dig his head into the marbles, and stay there in a bent position until I yell his name or tap the glass. He'll also go under the skull and get himself stuck and waits again until i tap the glass to move. 50% of the time, he's clamped to the point where I think he's going to die or is seriously sick. The other 50% of the time he's fat and making bubble nests.

Pudge on the other hand, has been unhappy. He's clamped just about 100% of the time, he doesn't seem to enjoy anything anymore. Not even feeding time is fun for him :/
I often have to stimulate him to get him off the ground because he'll "lay" down for minutes at a time, no matter what time of the day it is.

It seems like bubs and Jingles are my only healthy bettas -.-

Was Pudge tank next to Buhdda's by any chance or was squirt?
I'm thinking if pudge and squirt were both next to him maybe pudge is sad because he liked Buhddas company and maybe squirt is trying to catch your attention or possibly is just bored or something?

Buddha's tank was actually next to Sir Bubbles and Squirt. So Pudge couldn't see him :/

And don't know about Squirt. I'm looking at him right now and he keeps randomly twitching...

It's also possible Pudge is so sad because he's missing half his tail :/
