advice needed

Hey all,

I need some advice. My poor fish is just not the same after the jump out of the bowl. It seems like his beautiful fins have dried up? When he swims, it seems a bit labored. He does not seem to be able to "flair" up like he did before he was out of the water. His color is off, he looks SO pale.

His quality of life just seems terrible. He is not eating anything.

I am heartbroken and feel like such an awful "mother" to my fish for letting him flip out of his bowl.

Is there medication I can buy to help him? What can I do? Will his fins come back or did they dry out? I cannot believe he would have lived if he was out of water long enough to dry out. I swear when I put him back in the water right after it happened he seemed fine.

It's been 2 days now. What do I do?

I would try either some Betta Fix or some Jungle Fungus Eliminator. He may have an infection. Bettas do jump. It wasn't anything you did wrong. Just make sure there is a lid on his bowl.
