i hope he makes it. his age aside, the petstore bettas are often similar in parameters. it was off the chart for the thai DT i got in the shipping bag and similar for the barrack/mason jar water for my other 2 newer betta.
something more stressful would be the betta my parents' neighbor has. hes an old betta with damaged fins, 0.75 L vase, cold water no dechlor. water changes consisting of dumping the betta into the bathroom sink (usually plugged up for WC purpose but not 100% consistently) and yogurt container. all this is done within 1 minute for a complete change. he does get a 100 every 2 days or so but that doesnt make her better due to her WC procedure.
