Well I believe helping one Betta at a time helps a lot. These guys are mass breed by humans so it is our job to play a part and help them. If you pick up the Betta do start a thread and post pictures

He is doing so great, very alert and active. He swims to the glass when I approach his tank and he ate his breakfast just great. His color is really coming in and I already see a bit of clear fin growth starting.
I have not yet changed his water, to day will make two full days of having him, should I do a full 100% or just 50% water change?

It depends on the tank size but if I would recommend 100% with long periods of floating and acclimation.

I would do a 50% today so you don't stress him. How big is your tank?

for example, i have a 10 gallon tank with Honeycomb and thats it. I do a 25% partial water change each week.

His hospital tank is 2.5 gallons, he is very tiny so I didn't want to put him anything bigger with such little fins. His swimming is getting stronger but I want surface access to be a bit easier.

That should be fine I would do 100% every other day for the little guy but the more changes the better.
