Actually, he looks like a crowntail. Their tails naturally look "torn", although they can still rip them.

Thanks. :)

I'm still waiting around for some answers just in case this doesn't resolve.

He's cruising in his tank on the table watching me.

I've run into several cases of "the white eyebrow" as you describe which always follows with a very badly swollen eye.
Not wanting to mess with water change every day, & knowing it wasn't a water issue.
What I have done lately is dropp the affected fish in a 1 gallon tank, Then I use "Mardel" fast dissolving powder form.
I dump the entire pouch intended for a 10 gallon tank in, Leave the fish alone for about 3 - 5 days, (no water change nothing) at what time the eye is all cleared, then I throw them back with their sorority. Has worked every time for me, I found the smaller amounts required for the 1 gallon didn't help, the entire pouch however worked like a charm and I saw no ill effects to the betta's

Ah! Thank you SO much. I guess that explains why his eye looks worse even after I put in the required dose.

I don't have a hospital tank yet since I just switched houses. Maybe I can just dump the whole packet into his five gallon?

Thanks. c:

I just REALLY don't want to lose this fish. It's the same thing that happened to my rescue. Same eye, everything.
