The "hole in your fish's head" sounds like a bacterial infection. I've heard that serious bacterial infections will put "holes" in the fish's head and body. Also, you do an 85% water change multiple times a week in your 5gal? Have you tested for ammonia? Is your tank filtered? With a filter you shouldn't need to do so many large water changes with a filtered tank. Hope this helps!
(BTW I use a cup when transpoting my betta Tony)

The "hole" was/is a white wound, it seemed a bit sunken, but it looks to be healing.
He doesn't act sick at all.

Yes I do a 85% water change twice per week, one only water..one with the vacuum, i got two 2.5's so i do the 5 at the same time, i just heard the more water changes the better.

no i don't test for ammonia, i have a ammonia test kit tho.
my tank has a filter.

i do it while im already all covered in fish water and have the stuff out
its like killing two birds with one stone *lol*
and he looks the happier for it
