new betta acting weird?

I got a new betta today and put him in a 3 gallon tank. Temp at 79 and parameters all 0 and oh 7.4. I have a pinch of salt and stress coat in with him. He's acting kind of like a zombie. He's swimming around but I feel like .e's looking right through me. It's just weird. I acclimated him over half hour by floating him in water and adding a little bit of my tank watee to his a little at a time. I put him in the tank and he swam around and then I went out. When I got home he seems like a zombie. The fins aren't clamped or anything. Prior I had the Walmart rescue in there 8 days ago he passed and I cleaned the entire tank and rinsed the gravel and put in new filter cartridge and fresh water with water conditioner. I'm pretty sure what ever that other Betta had should be gone right? When he was alive I had malachite green in there because I thought it was velvet and Bettas fix before that. So I'm assuming what ever it was is gone right? I rinsed out the tank gravel filter heater thermometer and ornaments after he died then waited 8 days to put in another fish. Sorry its a long post lol. I may be paranoid. Or is my new guy just getting used to his home
