I never got a chance to post this when I joined. He is part of the reason I am here. He became sick and lethargic because I missed a WC or two. Back then I didn't know how much care is involved or the fun either in keeping a Betta.

His old tank
Right before his passing
He survived over a year in a non heated tank with plastic plants, goldfish flakes and betta pellets, and once a month water changes. He was quite adaptable and I am sure he would have been better off in a nice heated natural planted tank with frequent water changes.
