Welcome to the forum and sorry you are having problems...

In a filtered 7.9gal filtered tank at 82.4 temp.......fish is lethargic....most likely it is related to the weekend feeder....I would remove it and make a 50% water change today and again tomorrow and see if that will perk him up any...
Also, hold food for 2 days...then offer small amounts several times a day....

Keep us posted.....
