Not with Epsom salt...but with aquarium salt (sodium chloride) it is best to have a 5 day rest between treatments......Epsom salt you can use long term if needed....

@ Anhel123... sorry for taking so long to reply... havent been able to get online for a while. Betta hasn't changed much at all... maybe even got a little bit worse... we have put him in his own 10 gallon tank and have been using the Epsom Salt treatment but nothing has changed. I'm adding some updated photo's here. Maybe try the Epsom Salt treatment, if you get it in time it might work.

He has beautiful bright color. It like OFL say: ''Even with a tumor he can still live a normal life until it grows to the point that it cause pressure on the internal organs....''

U treat him like a king ...10 gall tank :)

Good luck he is lucky to have you!!!
