Betta Turrets?

I have been having problems with Avenger since day 1
Between ammonia burns, finrot, inflammed gills, then I feel ito suspecting columarias

Well, the last few days Avenger has FINALLY been acting normal(er), he swims, eats, investigates, and today he started flaring
He has also developed a new sympton....
Im guessing either Turrets or he has some sort of oher issue (please tell me if you know)

He will swim around his QT tank and all of a sudden jerk, he doesnt really seem to notice it, normally its his "head", like his neck jerked the other way real quick, sometimes it will happen two or three times one after another, sometimes his whole body wil start jerking.... he always goes right back to swimming after

His gills still have a slight curl (have always been that way)
and his fins are now growing back

the jerking/turrets has me worried....

he is in a 1.5 gallon QT tank (100% water changes everyother day, plus I use a turkey baster to get out uneaten food and poop after every meal)
He gets fed twice a day- 3 pellets in the morning, 3 at night, they are crushed to allow him to eat them easier
Temp is 77
I use API water conditionor +
