Unhappy Betta died but please help me figure out what from

Tapper kept going on the bottom of the tank and flaring up. then he would go up to the filter and get stuck so i would have to get him out. after that he would actually lay down on the bottom. the only time that he ever got up was when one of the fish bothered him or he was being fed. oh and by the way he was a half moon. he was actually Tapper III
