Well, I don't have a light above his tank (No hood :P Just a cover), so I have reflection problems because I use a lamp... But I'll give it a try.

The Popeye looks like it's shrinking :)

But if it doesn't go away after 10 days on the Epsom salt treatment, what should I do?

Maracyn Two didn't help, so if it doesn't go away, should I give him a week or so with nothing in his water and then try aquarium salt? Just thinking ahead right now just in case it doesn't work.

Well if it doesn't go away, just keep the water clean...wait at least a week before you try adding anything else to the tank. Just be patient.

I'm trying, it's just so hard!

He's been more active lately- I think he likes having 10 gallons to himself... But what he'll do when I divide up his tank, I don't know. Poor boy. I almost don't want another Betta because I feel bad for giving him all this space and then taking it away from him, but I'm waiting a while to get another one anyways. I think the only way I'll get one any time soon is if I'm at the pet store and see one I can't live without.

He's even more active now. My BFF came over and we painted a background for him on a sheet of watercolor paper and taped it to the back of his aquarium, and i think he likes it :)

I also think he's an 82 degree fish, not a 78 degree, because I've had him on 78 but his water was warmer than usual after his change and he was a LOT more active.
