Gasping fish?

I have two bettas Lennox and a new fish I just bought yesterday, they are in separate tanks. I changed Lennox's water, did a 100% water change, acclimated him he swam around fine for a good 10 min. then decided to start gasping for air and lying on the bottom of his tank. He will rapidly start to go for air then go back and hide in his tank. The other fish that I just bought yesterday is doing the same thing. HELP PLEASE!!

Yeah I put in water conditioner and checked the nitrate and nitrite. They were perfectly fine too.

Did you acclimate to both the temp and chemistry or just the temp...

I would go ahead and make a 50% water change now...dosing the dechlorinator for the full volume of the tank-if not double dosing it-be sure the water temp of the replacement water is pretty close too and turn off the light...
