Well 76 is a bit chilly, maybe he's not happy about that, and taking it out on his tail? I'd raise the temperature up to 78-80F, that's the range most bettas are comfortable at. If your heater can't do that, then it needs to be replaced. A 25w manually adjustable heater should be enough for a 5g tank, unless you live in an extremely cold region then you can go up to 50w, but otherwise 25w adjustable heater is sufficient for a 5g.

Also not sure about your DIY sponge filter although your tank does sound plenty cycled... I'm just paranoid myself because I'd rather buy an actual well-made filter that I know will work, rather than jerry-rig one up myself...

Here's the filter I recommend (if you're ever looking to upgrade your filteration) & use in my own 5.5g tanks (they're rated for up to 20g and are nice compact sponge filters, so do not take away much space from your tank).

https://www.amazon.com/Powkoo-Double-Biochemical-Aquarium-Gallons/dp/B01M3VALFU/ My bettas (and I) LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!! Double sponges for extra filtration with more room for beneficial bacteria to grow.

AND from Petsmart - I HIGHLY recommend the TopFin Quartz BioBalls ceramic filter media, the rounded pearl shape makes them fit a lot more into a small space such as the dual-media chambers in the sponge filter I highly recommended above. It looks like this in store: https://i.imgur.com/Xz50k5F.jpg (I think it's not yet listed on their website because the stuff is still a new release).

As for how to transfer over from your homemade DIY sponge filter to this upgrade, without crashing your nitrogen cycle, you can run both filters together simultaneously for 2 weeks, then slowly phase out the old homemade one. You can also add additional Seachem Stability or other beneficial bacteria boosters to the new sponge filter after the transition of the filters.
