What disease is this?

so um... King Dedede started darting (kind of lightly, I can't hear him do it) around the tank and flares at me, when he does, it's a full-on-flare and I see some red color on his right gill, there's also a golden color near and on his gills, it's not like a dust or anything, just golden-yellowish.

When he gets tired of darting, he leans against the tank, he looks pretty skinny, but I've been feeding him.

I also see.. black near his tail I detected and some of his tail has gone away, I think he's also suffering fin rot... MAYBE?

LTB said it might be internal parasites or something, but I think it might be something else because I see King Dedede's scales in a sunset orange color, but still, I think it also could be internal parasites, too...

I just feel like this is some kind of disease...

might be ammonia posioning. Are his gills red, inflamed(puffy) and is he having trouble breathing? Do a water change right away. Usually, this measn the tank isnt being cleaned as often as it should be cleaned

Sounds to me like ammonia burns. A rotting tail and rotting gills from dirty water. How often do you change their water?

ok, he is having trouble breathing, but I can't do water changes often because my parents and work. my parents say "don't do it" because they say they're "busy" they care more about me than my bettas...

Keep with the water changes and he would be on the way to recovery. I truly hope he gets better.

The fish is YOUR pet, its YOUR responsibility. YOU need to clean the water, if that means disobeying your parents. Why are you home alone anyway?
