I just took a much closer look at him with better lighting and did homework on fin rot. It looks like that's what is going on.

I did do a 100% water change last night. This morning I got up, he looked like he was belly up. He's barely moving!! Any help? I don't want to flush him yet. I only got him about a month ago

Only the conditioner that I mentioned in my original post. I have a gal. milk container that I fill up each time I change the water and I add the conditioner then

He still seems to be the same. I don't match the water temps. The heater that I use heats up the water pretty fast. Usually stays b/n 78 & 80 degrees F. The temp in the house stays around 78 during the summer times.

It is important to keep the water temp within a couple of degree of new and old water especially with 100% water changes to prevent temp related shock issues.
What is the water temp now?
Since he is stressed I would turn out his light and even cover the tank if the room he is in is bright to lower the stress level and you are 100% sure that you used dechlorinator with the water change and nothing fell in the water that could have poisoned him, accidents happen....
I would also gentle dip out half the water with a cup and replace with fresh like temp dechlorinated water.

Thanks for the help everyone. I just went to check on him. He is laying on his side very still on the bottom. I tapped on the side where he is and he didn't move. :'(
