I tried a dose of Epsom salt since it was looking like Popeyes, and today his eyes are clear and swelling went down! He is still not eating and rather lethargic, but overall he is much better now. I think he will eventually like the 5 gallon tank, he now hates his cup when I change the water. He tried to jump out of it tonight! He is definitely improving, just wish he would eat! He did poop yesterday, not much, so I guess he ate a little something when I wasn't looking. I have tried freeze dried blood worms, omega one flakes, bettamin crisps, some pellets, and 2 other brands of betta flakes. My old fish only liked flakes, so I have a variety of those...we might try some live food tomorrow, I have never tried it before, but figure it's worth a try to get this guy to eat since its been a week or so since he ate last. He is still dull in color, but I think he is going to recover quickly once he eats again
