It may be filtered but I don't think its taking the chlorine out of the water. Do you have water conditioner? You might want to change his water (a full change) and add conditioner to the new water and then see how he does and see if that was the problem.

When will you be able to do a full change? You could always put him back in his small containerfor now, which wouldn't be as much work as the tank and at least he'd be in conditioned water until you are able to do the full change.

My parents are mad at me now for mentioning a tank change. I probably won't be able to do it for a long time.

The reason he is more harmed by the larger tank is because it started cycleing while he is in there, his 1g can't start cycling. Put him back in his smaller tank till the ten gallon is cycled. Fishless Cycling Made Easy here is a nice article on fishless cycleing that might help

I want to have it cycled, but my parents won't do it, they don't think it's necessary and they get mad at me.

Cycling a tank isn't necessary. None of my tanks are cycled. You just need to keep up on your water changes if you choose not to cycle a tank (well you should do water changes on a tank anyhow, you just need to do them more frequently / larger percentage on a non-cycled tank) You can do that on your own can't you? I don't see why your parents would get mad at you for demonstrating that you are capable of properly taking care of a pet. Shows responsibility.
