very very sick betta

my blue crowntail has edveloped something very bad.
yesterday afternoon i changed his water and he looked fine. i also checked him this morning and he even played with my finger. when i came home tonight, i saw him very sick. he dveloped some sort of fungus-like stuff on his belly side, just below his gills. he looks like he's having a hard time and i feel very bad for him. the white stuff looks like as if it has eaten some parts of his body and exposed it. i don't know whter this is body rot or advanced state of fungus. what's bothering me is how he developed it in very little time. he lives in a 2.5 gal tank alone. i do partial water changes religiously also. what i did for now was to replace the water again and pout some methyline blue and alittle salt in the replacement water. please tell me waht to do, thanks!

If it's not too late, your local fish store should have a supply of different fish meds. These products usually have a chart so you can determine what type of disease the fish has so you can pick the right product.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I too just had a Betta pass on.
