Betta ich recovery

My blue betta came down with a bad case of ich months and after chemical treatment failed to work, I cranked up his heat to the mid-80s in 2-degree increments like I read online.

It worked and the ich went away.

But he’s been incredibly pale and thin-looking for the last two months after the ich went away. He looks so thin I feed him almost daily when I would usually feed every other day.

He’s in a 10 gallon by himself. Sponge filter, 78 degrees.

Can I do anything else to help him recover and get his colors back?

He’s an alien betta from Frank’Bettas so he’s much smaller than normal bettas.
