I think your fish is suffering from ammonia poisoning, but the good news is this is something you can deal with. Change his water now. 80* is a good temperature for him, but you need to bump up the water changes to 100% every second day.
If you continue with the water change schedule you have now (the every ten days), the next thing is likely to be fin rot. Water changes need to be frequent in 1 gallon because the ammonia will build up quickly.
I'm sure you'll find him more active with more frequent changes. :)
I agree with Canuck Fins, it is most likely ammonia poisoning. You won't see an immediate response to clean water. He has to rebuild tissue and slime coating lost from the ammonia burn. Basically, he can't breath as well so he won't be as active until his gills repair and he can breath normally again. In a 1 gallon tank the minimum water change schedule is one 50% water change and one 100% water change per week. You should probably do 100% every other day or every third day for a few weeks until he perks up. You can also offer him frozen food to boost his immune system.
ok so i decided to do another water change today full, removed some more of his gravel , took out the plastic plant and changed up his pvc pipe cave for a clay pot cave. All to give him more swim space too, so here is the vid you can in parts of the beginning and more towards the end, see the funny "lean" i say he does almost if the back part of his body doesnt work
besides that he eats perfectly , actually he has been more hungry than usual , literally "leaping" for his food and he made a bubble nest yesterday too
here is the video hopefully you'll be able to see what i mean from :48-1:00
