Ivo might be sick?

Not sure what's wrong with him, this is my first betta. I think I messed up, I put him in a 10gal tank with a little fake tree with plastic leaves and a little hiding place for him under the tree. I feed him once a day with 4-5 pellets of the Aqueon Betta Food(Seems like fish poison to me) but I looked at him and realized he's not as colorful as he used to be. In the tank I can kind of see some of his scales floating around. I'm guessing it's because I don't provide him with a heater, water chemicals, the fish poison I feed him, or just me being stupid. Posted some pics hopefully you guys can help me keep him alive. #SaveIvo

I took him out of the 10 gal tank and emptied that out btw. The water and tank was filled with clear slimey kind of stuff it was mostly on the bottom of the tank but would come off and start floating in the water. I put Ivo back in his little cup I bought him in.
