Exclamation Sad & Confused...HELP PLEASE

Hello,
I have a red male betta named Zarek. I have only had him 10 months. He use to be really hyper and happy and the past couple days he has been acting weird, he is laying on his side at the bottom of his bowl and when he is at the top of the water he is kinda half on his side half trying to stay down. He looks like he is having a hard time 'breathing'....please help...i love my fishy and don't know what to do??????

What size bowl is he in? What's the temperature of the water?
How much did you feed him today?

I think so, too. But it's tough to know when we can't rule out the basics.

That's really unfortunate. I'm sorry your fish passed, but at least you gave an effort.
