Ok so here is what I use. I mostly use the one on the right, Start right (I get it from walmart) it may not be the best but all 5 of my girls are doing wonderful and for the past year none of my bettas have had problems with the Start Right. I have used BettaSafe but it is more expensive and that one is my back up when I forget to get more StartRight.
Please let me know how he's doing or what you're doing currently or whatever. If anything before you take him out add some fresh water with only your water conditioner in it and see if it helps him
Also you will need to get a 2.5 gallon tank and a heater in order for him to get better fully
