Wartooth stressed? Also is this safe?

Okay. So I came home tonight and Wartooth was beyond stressed and I have no idea why. His color faded and his gills were moving rapidly so I changed his water (due to the fact that he has a white spot that will not go away so I have to do regular water changes). His water is at a constant 76 degrees and he hasn't been messed with all day. He's in his emergency tank and has been there since Saturday so that shouldn't be the issue.

Anyways, I covered his tank up with a black shirt of mine, will that smother him? I know that sounds stupid but I'd rather be safe than sorry!

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed?

Try just covering the bowl with the dark shirt but leave a small area open (on the edge) so that air can get in and out.
