Do you have Aquarium Salt or can you buy it soon?
Hi. I got API's Pimafix Anti-fungal remedy. I got aquarium salt as well (also from API). I changed the water in the tank, retreated, and added both aq salt and the Pimafix.
After around 5 hours (while mostly waiting for the water temp to come down) I began the process of moving the betta back into the large tank (let the cup float for an hour and a half, then added some tank water every 10 minutes for another hour or so).
After 2 hours in the tank he seemed to struggle to come back to the surface for air, so I grabbed him back in the cup (using 100% new tank water). The water in the cup is about 2-3 inches, which he seems to be liking a lot more (he's coming up to the surface a lot), but I may lower it further if I notice any more difficulties.
New picture, from when he was sitting at the bottom of the normal tank: http://i.imgur.com/hhocj.jpg
After this (assuming the poor guy survives the night) I'm not sure if I should just try to treat him in the cup, or try the regular tank again.
