Not sure why this didn't post the first time...
Firstly, don't use anything with fix on the end of it because it tends to contain an ingredient that damaged the labyrinth organ which as you know is the organ your betta uses to breathe!
Second: Do you have a picture?
Third: Please answer as many of these questions as possible so we can help you and your buddy faster!
