I'll just answer here. Don't feel like moving to the other Tab.
Okay, 1st of all, a Healthy Betta is a Happy Betta!!! The Healthy Signs are Active and Alert, No Visible External Parasites, the Poo isn't White, the Fins are Full, not Torn or Ripped, the Colors are Vibrant and Bright, that's all I know...
Bubblenests don't always mean Happy. That's the Real Deal.
Second, Inflamed Gills are mostly caused by a High Ammonia Content. What Color are the Gills, exactly? It depends. Anyways, just make sure that the Water is very clean and if it's Gill Disease you could treat it with Ampicillan and a little bit of Aquarium Salt. Sorry I can't help you with anything else...
And sorry for Triton. Dropsy is a Pain in the Neck isn't it? :'(
Sorry... :(

Thank you! Okay, yeah I have them in different qt tanks, poop looks to be normal for both since I have no gravel in either tank. The king's colors have REALLY popped since I first got him and he patrols his tank.

The delta was in a cup at petco so I'm not surprised he has inflamed gills since they don't really change the water much. I'll add AQ salt, his gills look like they are dark ? not really seeing red or anything like that.

Thank you for your condolence, I had him for a little over a year, poor guy randomly started to deteriorate over the last month or two, and then the pine coning. I tried EVERYTHING, put him in QT blablabla, oh well. Maybe he was older? you can never really tell. Anyways I'm keeping the delta in QT until he improves, the King I believe will be going into the community tank next weekend since he seems to be so healthy and active and eats like a pig.

I will keep updating the progress!
