Don't worry about it, I'm thankful you're here now.
I have pictures taken of him but no way to get them onto a computer just yet. I should have them up tomorrow though. I'm going to go through everything I noticed and have done to condense everything and make this a little easier.
Current Condition: He is in a 1 gallon QT that currently has 2 teaspoons of Epsom salt and my water conditioner. During water changes he resides in a small cup, I try not to keep him in there to long, he gets stressed. The air temp is around 80 F, we might bring that down, but it's getting cold here so we'll have to see.
Fungus: I don't know how long he's had it. It's dark blue/green in color and is hard to spot. I'm not sure it will show up in the pictures. In the last 24-36 it changed color and became white, however it is back to being dark now. I think it might have something to do with the Bettafix I put in then before changing the water to just aquarium salt, but I'm not sure.
Pop eye: His left eye has the pop eye. I noticed it about 24-26 hours ago. It seems to have gotten larger since then. There are also small white bubble things that are around the eye, one is around the mouth and one is on the top of the right gill. I don't think it's ich, he had the start of it once before but it didn't get bad.
Bloating: He's quite large. He's always been a little bloated though I don't overfeed him. He has gotten larger today and it seems to be most prominant of the opposite side of the pop eye. He is being fed 1mm pellets with a minimum crude protein of 37%. I do have a treat wheel with blood worms and other things but he doesn't seem to like any of the food. I have fed him today, so I will start fasting him tomorrow.
Gills: His gills became inflamed this morning after two 100% water changes. There is no ammonium, I have tested that frequently and have never had a problem with it or nitrates and nitrites. His gills are still very inflamed, but it has gone down in color since this morning.
Waste: It's brown. The only time it hasn't been brown is when I fed him peas and it turned green. It is very long though. I was told healthy betta waste should look like a cinnamon roll, but his looks like a cinnamon stick.
Behavior: He has stopped sitting on the bottom of the QT, and stay near the top now. I'm not sure if he's having trouble swimming or not, but he doesn't seem to be having troubles breathing anymore.
I'm not really sure what Columnaris is. Is there anything in specific I should look for? The pictures will be up tomorrow to help with all of this. I'm not sure how good they are, my camera isn't the best. Thank you guys for all the help and information, it means a lot to me.
