Are you sure the other fish are healthy? Are you sure the other fish aren't bothering him?
I've heard of that before.. Had him in a 10 gal previously which he's in now.. the other fish he was with were completely healthy and they didn't bother him.

What I would do** is put him in a one or 2 gallon container ("hospital tank") and add some aquarium salt. Instructions on the salt container say half teaspon per gallon. It's like giving a sick child pedialyte

If he looks a little better after a day or 2 put him back in the 10. If not, do a water change.....then you might need to try some other fish meds. No one likes the one I used so I hope someone will come along and suggest a good one.

**I've only treated one sick betta in my betta career so far. I did a good job because he revived in 2 days and is super healthy now.

Atleast I could say I tried. He meant alot to me, he was different than the other bettas I've ever had.

R.I.P. Dip

So sorry for your loss! At least you know you were taking really good care of him and he probably had a better life than most bettas get :)
