ive been feeding him the aqueon betta food. i usually feed him 3 twice a day. his water temp seems to be holding at about 80 right now. unfortunately im struggling money wise so i cant afford any water testing kits at the moment. i got home from work today and noticed that it appears now he has "popeye". and hes floating on his side. ill do everything i can from the advise given to me. thank you for the help, ill keep you updated, hopefully he makes it.

Do what I said in post #9. It doesn't require buying any test kits but you do need epsom salt and aquarium salt ASAP.. what you are describing is very worrysome.

I also asked questions there about temperature and feeding habits..

His water temp is at 80 and i feed him twice a day with 3 pellets each time. Ive been trying one pellet a day but he wont touch it so i remove it before it sinks. Hopefully i dont seem like horrible betta owner.. im new at this and i feel horrible.

Everyone has to learn sometime. Don't worry.

At this point he needs fasting and water changes salt etc to recover anyway, so don't worry he won't eat.

What brand of pellet are you feeding?

It's not the best but not the worst either. If you continue with this I would cut him back to 2 twice a day with one fast day a week, once he's recovered.
