Exclamation Help! New tank with filter. Betta is laying on side on bottom & struggling to swim...

We have out Sidney in a 5.5 gal tank. Temp is 78. I'm going to have the water tested. He's struggling to swim to the top. He's almost sideways swimming. He lays on his side at the bottom or in his tree. I just turned the filter off because I thought maybe the current was too much. Idk. I'm very worried.
