In the 1gal bowl I would increase your water changes to 1-50% and 1-100% a week and get the water temp up to at least 76F...sounds like she is cold and poor water quality issues

Right now you may want to do 100% daily water changes for a few days and see if that won't help along with adding a small heater

I agree completely with Oldfishlady. She surely is suffering the low temperature. You should try getting a 2.5 gal tank so you can have a heater and a filter. It would be the best for her and for you so you don't need to be doing complete water changes every other day and your little girl won't get stressed so often, which is a GREAT thing so her immune system is OK.
