Sadly he died during the night. Moments like that make me feel like I shouldn't be a fish keeper.

I would highly recommend uping the temp in his tank to between 84-86 if you haven't already, and treating him with Stresscoat and epsom salt! Keep him in the dark so he can chill out, and keep his water crystal! You should hopefully see an improvement!

So sorry he didn't make it!! Sometimes things like that happen, don't give up on yourself or your abilities to be a good fish keeper.

i once had a Betta that jumped out of his bowl, we found it God knows how much later, ants were already on his mouth, we placed him back into his home and after a week of looking like a ghost and many tears from my part he was back to normal, color, form and activity.

Sorry about your loss...
