Thank you for the answer; but alas he passed today. :<
I got him young and he was colorless and had clamped fins from the start. With the way his symptoms were it was definitely bacterial, so I used some of those droplets that have neomycin, malachite green and cyanocobalamin in them. I'm not sure how long he was sick before I got him and I feel bad that he passed but at least some attempt was made at recovery.
I just really thought he was doing better.
I will probably wait and work with just my CT now and become more comfortable with them before I try to doctor one again. I just kinda figured since the last betta I had lasted a few years and was awfully healthy that I may have had a chance. >_>;;
