I think he passed away last night. He probably was malnourished from that petstore we bought him at. He seemed fine at the petstore but then at night he started swimming lopsided. We did everything we could. We kept the temperature at 79 degrees and we accumulated him very careful. We made sure to dissolve the salt before putting it in and used dechlore. :( Is there something we did wrong or was he just too sick to nourish back to health. We only had him three days :(

sorry i didn't expect that he will pass so fast. You sure you didn't forget to put dechlorinator when you added Epsom salt? I have no idea he even ate on monday...so sorry. The temperature is good too. For bettas perfect temperature is 76-80*

Unfortunately it always possibilities to get sick betta from the store. I am wondering if he was already sick when you bought him. When did you buy him? When they in those little cups in the stores it difficult some times to see if they have problem. I think they swim differently in those cups then when you put them in the tank….:( But you really did what you could and I am sure he was happy to feel your love.



Also what do you mean you think that he passed..If you not sure don't throw him out make sure he is dead. One time i thought that betta is dead i almost throw him out before i realized he is alive. That betta was also sick.

Oh cause He was my sisters I just put him Sunday for her. She doesn't live with me but we go to the same college so we live near each other. I have been helping her with him. She said he was dead but I haven't seen him yet. Yeah Monday night he didn't look so good, so we added the epsom salt did 100% water change. People on here said he looked malnourished so I guess that petstore doesn't do a good job of feeding them properly. He died so rapidly :( I hope mine makes it now so paranoid.
