I actually read you should feed them what they'll eat in 2 min, but I got a feel for what his eating habit was and just gave him about that much in 1 minute. Usually about 3 pellets each feeding. I'm going to try and fast him for 3 days and move him to a more lit area and see how that goes.

Definitely looks like tumors ): Just google "betta tumors" on image search, and it looks almost exactly like them. NOT bloat, you can tell when a betta is bloated, and you would have to try extremely hard to bloat a betta this bad without it dying. Plus the issue with TWO bumps. I'm not quite sure what you would do with a betta with tumors, but I don't really think there IS much you can do, other than try to make them happy.

While the lump closer to his head is near his stomach and could potentially be just bloat, the lump further back and more on his side is very likely a tumor. As codered said, sadly there is not too much you can do for him.

Looks like Fish Tuberculosis to me. I would link you to a very informative thread on the matter but as it is on another forum it is against the rules

I can however post the links posted in that thread

I'm pretty sure there is nothing you can do if it is in fact TB.
