Just give him a few days maybe hes just weird, lol. What is the temp of the water, the only thing I can think of is the water was originally warm and you replaced it with rather cold water, that might have shocked him and he sat there for a while, but idk.

Those were my thoughts as well, IonBaller.

Even if you acclimate the fish slowly, if the difference between the temperatures is too great, it still could go into a bit of a shock. The top of the tank also would probably be warmer, so maybe that is why it was at the top? In addition to needing more air from going into shock.

Just a possibility...

Yeah the temperature read about the same, and his scales started slowly turning silver from what looked like a lack of oxygen but he seems fine now! He keeps seeing a reflection of himself and trying to attack itso I'm guessing he's back to normal. This is the second time this has happened since I've been on vacation though and I'm starting to wonder why it's just happening here. Maybe he just doesn't like the change in scenery.

My first betta hated water changes and would look like he was dying every time I did a water change. He would hang out at the top and not move sometimes for about an hour. Then he'd be fine. I guess some get stressed out more easily than others.
