I'd make sure his water is clean. Maybe change it even if you think it is in case a spray or something got in there. Beyond that though, it might just be his time.

It could be a swim bladder problem. Is he having difficulty swimming down and then floating back to the top?
Finally got my fish room ;0)

No hes on the surface perfectly vertical, he was living with mollies, guppies and a few female bettas but started to flip out a couple of days ago so I put him in his own jar

I breed bettas and have never had one act like that. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

We all gotta go. Fortunately he went fairly quickly.

The best of luck with your other fish and maybe a new betta too.
