I'm considering it but I am worried about changing the temperature anymore.

Sorry you are having problems.....

My first thought when I read the first post.....new environment....filter/water movement and space is all new to him.....this stress along with the temps may be causing some problems.....generally a healthy Betta can tolerate these temp swing...but a stressed one is a different story....

As far as the coloration-look like normal pigment....

just do it one or two degrees at a time. If you go slow enough they do quite well. The warmer water will help him.

He has been perfectly fine in his tank since I had him. He immediately made a bubble nest by his first night and was always very active. The filter has barely any flow, just the minimum. He was also not stressed until the filter came in, which he flared at when it came into the tank. He seems to be fine with its presence now but his heath is worrying.

So you changed filters or what do you mean by "He was also not stressed until the filter came in, which he flared at when it came into the tank" how long has the filter been in the tank and how long has he been in the tank....how long have you had him....

I have had him for about two weeks. I was waiting for his filter to come in the mail and it came in a few days ago. I rinsed it off and placed it into the tank.

I will not play with Epsom salt until I know for sure what it is. I hear it can be dangerous.
