oh well its good your using conditioner
but with my experience, my fish was doing the same thing the first couple weeks i had him. he was active and healthy looking, then almost without reason he would just lay at the bottom of the tank and only come up for food and air- until i got him a heater. he now is as active and healthy looking as ever. so even though your fish could be shocked i highly recomend the heater . they are used to warm water so they wont be as active in room temperature water.
and heaters usally come submerible. havent really seen lamps.
but do you have a liquid test kit to test the parameters? What is your tank size?
