If he's having trouble breathing might as well make it easier on him. yup do the gradual water change. Same temp water. If your going to continue the bettafix I would cut the salt out. I would do one or the other, which every your more comfortable with.

Who knows why they get sick. As for which one you should do its up to you. Just make sure you read the box/bottle carefully for dosage with only a half gallon. I really hope he gets better soon.

Not fin rot.
You've got a tail biter. I as well, strongly suggest getting a tank at least 2.5 gallons. an appropriately sized heater, and lots of decor to frequently change out to entertain him.
Most tail biting comes from stress or boredom. It maybe both, it maybe just one of those. But why not knock them both out with a larger tank and decor to change out once a month?

Good luck with him!

water isn't going to make him stop tail biting
a better environment and entertainment will.

I honestly wouldn't even use BettaFix. I've read too many people having more problems using BettaFix.

Id wait until he sits still to take a picture.
Or if he moves when you come over, do you have an iphone? you could take a video, upload it to youtube and give us the link.
