Exclamation Is this normal..?

On May 2nd, I bought my very first Betta, Sashimi. He was put into a 10g by himself with a heater, filter, and lighting.
But than yesterday, I ended up getting another Betta (Gemini) and I thought that rather than spending 40$ on another tank, I would just buy a 6-9$ divider. So now, both my Betta boys are in a 10g tank that is divided, so the boys are in a 5g.
This morning when I went to go feed them breakfast, I see that Sashimi is just hanging..He swims around the 5g and stops and just passes out. Than, he does it again every 5-10 minutes. Sashimi is not being his active self, instead he is just being lazy...Should I be concerned?
Here is pictures of the tank set-up and Sashimi and what he has been doing for about 10+ minutes.
By the way, I know Sashimi looks like he can fit and go on the other side, but no. He can't fit, I checked.

It might be helpful if you explain what you mean by passing out. Does he stop swimming and float? Does he sink? Are you sure he just isn't lay down of his own volition?

By "passing out" I mean: He swims around the tank once, and then, out of no where he stops and floats like in the picture. Than, I look closely and he is asleep. But, this happens like every 5-10 minutes. && He doesn't normally do this.
