doesnt use his eyes either. >.>

I keep thinking he's already dead cos he's so still.

I don't understand i am a newb but from what i have read and been told, and what i see it looks like your API test results are 4 or 5 ppm isnt that deadly for the fish .

@ 914joe - yup it's 4-8 ppm
I made the shop keeper add lots of new water in before he bagged him so it was probably originally 8-16ppm

Hope he pulls through. I reported a local chain store tothe RSPCA for the appalling condition of some of their Betta's, some were at deaths door and sadly I did not have any room to take any more on

Sending positive thoughts! Poor guy. At least you are giving him a chance, and at least he'll get some decent conditions to try to recover in.
