I'm having trouble with Atlas lately, I took him out of the 20g about two weeks ago only to watch his health deteriorate despite my efforts.
He's not clamped right now, but was earlier today. He doesn't do anything other than sit on the bottom of his temp tank, and chill. I usually have to move it to see if he's alive. There's no visible sign of illness- he's not bloated, I already tried epsom salts, there's no fungus that I can see, his color is fine. Just his activity level.
He did gnaw off his fins a while back, but they've been growing back.
He's lying on his side right now, maybe it's swim bladder? I know he's related to Florence and she has swim bladder issues all the time. I stopped feeding him about two days ago, but no luck yet. I also lowered his water level to about a centimeter.

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Nope. Still the same color and everything.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Incredibly lethargic. He wasn't an active guy to begin with, he came from a rough pet store and was already burnt by ammonia and wasn't in the greatest health. But that's been a few months back.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? About two weeks ago.
