At the moment I don't have a hospital tank, he just went in his new one today and he loves it so much, I have never seen this this happy before.

I will try to get a hospital tank, but first I need to get a heater, all the heaters they had were over 50 watts, BUT the tank is 3 gallons so I have to find a heater under 10 watts.

i would put him in a tubber ware container, a larger one, and stab holes in the lid, then out him in there so the water changes are easier, put him in the warmest part of your house also :)

When I put him in his new tank he started to develop small clear parts outside of his fins, looks like he is growing back some fins :)

I couldn't see any rot in the pictures, but the pictures weren't that clear so was hard to tell exactly.. he does have a case of biting though- or did when he was in the cup.

Forget about the salt at this time, keep up with the weekly water changes and he should be fine.

Clear-white coloration at the edges is new growth, but keep an eye on them. Look for blackened edges that seem flaky.. that is rot. But if the edges are smooth and the natural color then he is biting.

Bettas will change colors once they settle into their new home. He changed to darker/blander when you took him out because he was stressed.

Good luck and if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
