I noticed today, him stomach has gotten even smaller, he is looking more and more back to normal now, it's just that he's not acting the same, maybe he's just tired or something

Is he eating? Is he really lethargic? Is he responsive?

He's eating a little bit of daphnia, but he isn't really active, he is responsive but when you tap or something he like darts back and forth

sorry i am not sure why he is inactive. I would think it because of disease maybe. But i know that what you doing if it internal parasites it the right treatment. Sorry :( I think finish medications and don't stop salt. Don't worry about epsom, like i wrote before you can use it indefinitely. So don't stop it yet. One thing i don't want to upset you ,but i know if this medications will not help people on this forum usually recommending to try another medication for internal parasites. But lets don't panic and see how he doing. And how is his poo look a like.

I haven't seen his poop lately, I've been at college during the day, Also what does dropsy look like with dragonscale, I had another betta get dropsy early in the summer and she got bloated and then got really inactive, I don't think he's pine coning or anything though

I've seen dropsy on a betta with normal scales, I had a betta die of dropsy over the summer, I'm just not sure how it would look on a dragon scale,
and good new I don't think it's dropsy, I saw him poop it was long thick like and normal kind of curling over under his poop hole, it was a lighter color that normal but that maybe bc he's been only eating daphnia and not pellets

He still refusing pellets? How about do you have freeze dried blood worms?
If it not white and clear it good. I hope he will recover i just don't understand why he is a little lethargic :(
Betta can be bloated from the fluid accumulation but your betta bloated, if we diagnosed correctly from parasites. I don't think he has dropsy you are right. Well internal parasites also fatal disease though. I even think it very difficult to treat. I saw about 6 post about internal parasites and 2 only survive. Sorry i am telling you that though. I hope he will get better but always be ready for the worse still. I think with internal and external it very important to treat in time before it too late. So hopefully we doing right thing.
I am going to do 100% water change right now on my 3 year old betta.
Will wait for update. Good luck.
