Hey guys, my betta has been sick for a couple of months, I have tried treating him myself (betta revive) and that seemed to help for a little while but now it looks like he is getting worse and I'm not exactly sure what is causing it. I'm not sure if I should do a 100% water change to see if that will help, but I am afraid of any drastic change for my betta. Any advise would help.
Here is the requested info:
What size is your tank? 2.5 gallon Aqueon Aquarium
What temperature is your tank? 73-77 degrees
Does your tank have a filter? yes
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration?
Is your tank heated? no

Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters? I have not.
Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? face is gray sometimes, fins have rotted
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? stays at bottom of tank, sometimes lies on side, loss of coordination (cannot aim at food correctly)
When did you start noticing the symptoms? a couple of months ago
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? I used Betta Revive for three days, and he started to get better, some fin regrowth occured, but now it looks like he is getting sicker, and has no appetite at all.

I have included an image of what my betta looks like, taken yesterday, below, as you can see his top fin has pretty much disintegrated, and you can sort of see his gray face. Hope you guys can help, thx!
