Is he floating on his side and then swimming around? Have you fed him anything? Hopefully it's not swim bladder or something, but I will say that nearly 50% of the Petco bettas seem to be on their sides in the store (not dead, just on their side), so this seems to be a re-occurring problem with their stock. :(

No he's just sitting there and then he starts to lean and before you know it hes on his side not moving then he slowly falls to the bottom and shots up to the surface, but he was fine in his cup

Hmm, that's very strange. :( I'm sorry I don't have any idea what would cause that. You're absolutely positive your thermometer is correct and it's not too hot for him?

1. Don't panic. It never helps.

Is he "stuck" at the top of the water? Has trouble going down? Or does he simply float down?

Is it cycled? Just because another fish was in there doesn't mean it's cycled. How long was that other fish in there? Have you tried doing a water change? How are his fins - are they clamped? How are his colors - are they nice, or are they completely dull? How is his stomach - nothing is protruding? How are his scales - not sticking out?
