Rather new, and highly concerned beta mom.

My fiance and I moved into our apartment and decided since we had a lack of life here, to get a male beta about 6 months ago. We're still pretty low tech on the aquarium equipment but the part that concerns me is that our fish, Oliver, was highly active and lively up until approximately a month or so ago. He gets active and such every now and then, especially around feeding time or when I approach his stand he'll visit the front of the tank, but a lot of the time he's pretty sluggish nowaday, mostly laying at the bottom of his tank.

His conditions are the same as they've always been, not much change if any at all, I think it may have been stress for a bit seeings as we did have to pack him up for our evacuation from the hurricane, but is it normal to still be sluggish this much later? He just seems to go through phases and I'm really concerned about him.

Is it normal for beta's to go through phases like that and is there anything to help it?
