He was swimming up to get some air and then it just looked like he got scared and he started darting around and bumping into the walls of the cup, kind of like he didn't know they were there. I can't really explain it. He's been sitting on his tail all day though, so he didn't just suddenly start doing that. I was really hoping he would hold out till I got the Almond Leaf from you but if his organs are shutting down, I don't know how much good it will do even if I do get it in time. So frustrating!!!
I have a friend who was taking care of someones Betta for them and they had the Betta in a glass vase with no heater/filter and just marble rocks for decoration...only change his water every other week or so, and don't acclimate him back into the new water...they just pour him back in with part of his old water...and he's survived for years. I don't understand? I do everything I can and my fish dies, but someone else can neglect a fish and it lives for years. It's really upsetting. :( Makes me wonder if doing so many water changes all the time is the cause because they get too stressed out and then they get sick because of the stress.
