He is not really straightening up,, He's swimming with just those two fins right now but if I push him a bit with the soft edge of my net (how I was helping him get air) he will try to move his tail and end up vibrating his whole body.. :( Not sure how long I will be able to stand it >.<!

I'm so sorry! Poor fish & poor you! Totally not your fault-freak accident. I've only had to euthanize one of my fish so far. It was sad & hopefully it doesn't come to that. The clove oil method is what I did. I would give your fish a little time. The fish that I did have to put down had a really severe case of rot that eventually ate down to her body. But she fought for a month before things got bad. She didn't have hardly any fins when I got her and some spinal problems. If she had lived, she would have been special needs and I was okay with that. Before she got really bad and was doing okay, I had gotten a betta leaf hammock and placed it not too far away from the water level. She would rest on that and could get air. They have them at my local Petsmart. Good luck & don't give up hope yet. If the time comes, you'll know. The "light" seems to go out of their eyes. Take care!

Unfortunately he is getting worse, now he will barely move. I am going to put him down because he really seems to be suffering.. He won't move, won't eat, eyes are cloudy T_T .. I believe this is the best thing. Thank you all so much.

Sorry to hear that Tagni. I just put one of my boys down a few weeks ago, it's a hard decision to make but it is one that's for the best. I hope he goes peacefully.

I'm so sorry. It's never easy. I'm sure you'll do the right thing for the fish. Take care!

Thats what happened to my betta Dexter :( But sadly, he didn't make it. It was terrible. I cried because his poor dead body looked so helpless. I'm so sorry.
