Suddenly Lethargic....Not Eating..Very Worried Please help.

Hey all so my CT boy Prince Poppycock has me beyond worried...
In the last few days he hasn't been as active as he has been, but he was still eating fine and over all acting fine.
In the last two day he has stopped flaring, isn't clamped just not spread.
He has been sleeping a lot now almost comatose, basically have to touch him to wake him up. Tonight I did a full water change, added tanins, AQ salt, and Stress coat, some live plants(moss and duckweed). I am well to be honest extremely extremely worried. Tonight he didn't even want to eat and he is always begging for food. He ate a single small pellet and a single blood worm.. He pretty much ignored everything I tried.

1 gal bowl (temp)
not heat but water is 78-81 Degrees
Water changes every other day to every 2 days.


So if anyone has advice PLEASE! I love this guy dearly he is my pride and joy and I am worried sick.

Odd but necessary question: has he pooped in the last 48 hrs and if he did, did it look normal?

Honestly I couldn't tell you for sure. But there was a good amount of fecal matter in his substrate and I just cleaned in 3-4 days ago. It did look normal.
To clarify, I have done a partial water change just the other day, the 3-4 was the 100%

Then he's probably not constipated. This points me to either a bacterial infection or internal parasites. Definitely try the General Cure. Stay away from meds like Bettafix and Melafix.

Okay, well I will pick it up Asap tomorrow on the way home. Luckily Walmart has a general cure. I just hope he makes it till tomorrow night. I have to say I have never been so worried over one of my bettas before @_@.
Oh and there is no way I would get either of those I have read enough.
