Have you tried epsoms at 1-3 tsp per gallon along with a good internal antibiotic like Kanaplex or Maracyn Plus?

Also more info could be helpful:http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49233 There may be some small thing we're missing.

If you decide to euthanize though that's your choice.

Yes, I have. He has been sick too many times to count before and after I've rescued him. It's the Betta himself - I don't have anything wrong with all of my other betta.

Thank you. He has been sick too much and I can tell he's in a lot of pain. I would rather put him out of his misery and put my emotions last if it means he won't have to be in pain anymore :'(

Also you could put the Betta in water than add it in the freezer. I am not sure of this one though.

I've read about that one, I think it's a bit too inhumane for me. Thank you though :)

I hear the just fall asleep and die. My preffered method is letting them die on there own.

Personally I don't think it happens like that - the water temperature will slowly lower and they'd be in extreme stress etc :/ I don't know, though.

Yeah, I might just let him go on his own. But it makes me sad to see that happen, though it may be the only thing I can do as I don't have clove oil.

Clove oil is the most humane way.. The freezing method is really inhumane.. It's the same thing as hypothermia, it kills the living creature from extreme temperatures. I'm sorry your betta has dropsy.. :[

I am going to try and get clove oil in the next few days, but resources are tight right now so I may not be able to. I hope he passes really soon - he's hanging on for dear life :/

I am sorry too. He is a beautiful Betta - absolutely gorgeous. I've been having problems with him ever since I've had him and I think maybe it's just best to euthanize him. :'(
