I still don't get how a betta can change colors like that without it being lnked to a disease/problem.

I think he has ammonia burns because the water is not being changed enough . I know there was already a huge discussion on another one of your threads in which he explained that clean water is a VERY key factor in caring for a fish.

If you can't supply that and you're fish is suffering, you might be best in giving him away.

But you need to do full water change EVERY day with AQ salt for the injury. If there is parasites, which it sounds like, you are going to need another medicine for that.

I'm not allowed to give away my bettas...

and I don't know where to buy AQ salt, I know I need another medicine...

I don't know what's up with the colors, his scales turned orange-ish... near the tail.

You're letting your fish die. In fact, you're encouraged to let your fish die. Please, wait until you're grown up before getting ANY more pets.
