OK, your acclimation process looks great!

And yes, the Stress Coat is good for now. It should help with the healing process. (Just wanted to make sure you weren't using the Prime at the same time.)

Hope he's doing better tonight!

Ok so update: my husband said when he got home that he was responsive to him and was resting at the bottom of his tank.
He greeted him at the front once he realized he was there.

Managed to get a few pics sorry I couldn't get very clear ones.
He ate like a pig when I fed him just now and even did a few laps around the tank for me.

Julio has some sad looking face in these photos. :( I'll keep his water warm and clean, stress coat and some better pellets, like new life spectrum or omega one betta buffet. He should become a happy betta in a week or two. You take very good care of him.

Oh I know he looks so sad right?
I did turn his heat up slowly last night to 28. He seemed to become a bit friskier once his water heated up a bit.
I will get him some better pellets for sure. I know they have new life spectrum at the local aquarium...is there a specific one for bettas?

Thank you for all your help I am a new fishy owner and I've become very attached to this little guy
