Exclamation Please help

Ive had my betta "rose" for about 4 months, she was always very active but ever since i got a floating live plant shes been acting weird. Today i woke up and saw her at the bottom of the tank laying on her side breathing heavily now shes head up tail down on the top of the bowl. She wont eat and im scared if something might happen to her. PLEASE HELP! (SHE BARLEY SWIMS)

For now, I would remove the floating live plant and make sure you aren't overfeeding her, as this can cause the ammonia levels to rise. Answer the questions above as the members here will be able to help.
