Update on my rescue, Leonidas

He is still alive. The bloating has gown down ALOT. He still gets on his side sometimes, but not as much. He is usually upright and can dive down in his tank now. He has also become a VORACIOUS eater! I have been treating him with garlic and epsom salt and he seems to be improving everyday. After a couple of days of treatment he pooped out this HUGE thing that looked like a rock and a couple of smaller ones after that. Then his bloating started to go down and is now almost completely gone. He was at Petco, bloated and on his side for AT LEAST 2 weeks. They didn't think he was going to make it so they gave him to me. I named him Leonidas because he's a King Betta and is obviously a fighter because he made it this far. :D

Here's the original thread.
The garlic and epsom salt treatment seems to be working well. :) He was bloated from his tail all the way up to about the middle of his body. I mean REALLY bloated. He is a bit skinny because I didn't feed him for about a week.. I tried a couple of times, but he just didn't seem interested. But he's eating well now and should bulk back up, no problem :D
