Swim bladder disorder?

So last time I checked, being still verticaly resting on a plant wasn't normal. Unless the lads learned a new trick, I suspect he might have SBD. He keeps doing loop-de-loops around one of his plants. I had a betta that did that once, died the next morning from SBD. Maybe I'm just being odd, but I can tell something might be wrong.


Housing
What size is your tank? Five Gallons
What temperature is your tank? 78 Degrees
Does your tank have a filter? No.
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No
Is your tank heated? Certainly
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? He has none.

Food
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Top Fin: Betta bites I believe.
How often do you feed your betta fish? Once daily. I give him two pellets.

Maintenance

How often do you perform a water change? Weekly.
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 100% And 50% inbetween.
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Just water conditioner.

Water Parameters:
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?

I've not tested the water. I've no way to do so at this time.

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Nope.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Nope.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? When he was vertical in the middle of his tank and didn't move.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? No.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Nope.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I'd say atleast 6 months.

Any advise would be wonderful, thanks lads.
