high my betta did the same thing every time i did a water change if he dosent come good in the next day or two just retrace your steps untill you come to a solution with mine one time it turned out to be an ammonia problem bettas as you probably know are moody things its probably just stressed.

How large is this bowl? What's the water temperature? Do you test the water (using an API master kit)? I'd get the test kit if you don't and then let us know the parameters.
