Beautiful tank.

I'm a little confused. You have a male and female betta together with 5 neons? In the same tank?

It was unclear as to who was in what divided section....

Ok, well..... here's the bad news.

You must separate the male and the female. Once they reach spawning age, they will try to kill each other.

Again, as they mature, the male may not tolerate the neons. You always have to have a backup plan when putting a male or female betta in a community tank.

Sounds like you and the rest of the staff need to take some lessons in fishkeeping 101.

Please separate them. They WILL hurt or kill each other. If you really insist on doing this please provide as much cover as possible to break up line of site. It will allow one to escape the other easier. Does the female have horizontal lines? If so she is VERY stressed!

What's wrong with him? What are your ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH?

All my levels are correct i think he just needs more oxygen so pick up some oxy tabs today so see how it goes , had a word with oata and they say female and males are perfectly fine to live together as long as theres a hide for the female .

those tabs are bad news!
also bettas breath from the surface ...
did you cycles the tank even?
what are the actual numbers for your parameters? and how are you testing ( liquid or strips)

you need to remove 1 of the bettas
