I can't believe how sick this Betta was and how much better he is now.
We followed your advice and he is now in his own bigger filtered aquarium. He needs more plants, but that is a work in process. We did get him one of those leaf beds and he really does like it. He's eating and so much more active. His body looks much healthier, his fins aren't clamped, and his colour is better.
Next we need to get him a heater and more live plants. I was also considering a small driftwood piece to lower the ph.
My daughter is taking care of him now and has named him Dragon. I have told her that he is an older fish and may not live long, because I have no idea of his age.
Thank you for all your help. I am so glad that he survived and we can give him a better life.
