Think you may have mixed me up with someone..lol. Great price on that tank, I am in Canada though, and I don't have room for one that big. :(

make sure their unscented. Outside of that they look good. I'd start with a 1tsp per gallon and if that doesn't seem to be working out you can bump it up to 2 tsp and if need be 3 tsp per gallon.

As with everyone else I really do recommend a bigger tank but you can keep him in the half gallon. It just means near 100% water changes every other day.

Too late already did the first 25% change. I am following her exact guide minus the tannins because I don't have that. They are unscented I know that now. :). Hope and pray this works.

Well then there was no need for worry. If you want tannins or IAL just to have on hand (I think its beneficial) order some Indian Almond Leaves off of ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Amys-50-gram...item3a6828dd1b

This is Amy, I use her leaves for all my betta's needs. You just put one right in the tank and It'll release the tannins you need. It will make your water a dull brown color but that's normal and bettas like that

You have a great advice and i hope your betta will get better.

Just want to say definitely do more water changes for your other 2 bettas in .5 gall. Especially if you are feeding them with flakes. Flakes are so massy and a lot of them probably sink to the bottom while they are eating them. Always remove uneaten food. And I would still try to offer them pellets. A lot of time bettas refusing to eat pellets at the beginning but if you keep offering them, they might eat them eventually. The brands that i think are really good are Aqueon Betta Food; New Life SPECTRUM Betta Formula.
Also make sure when you change the water -new water is approx the same temp +-2-4* as their water.
Good luck.
