This picture is the clearest one that came out. The camera is really, really old.
(NOTE: HE WAS JUST ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE BOTTOM, BUT ROSE TO THE MIDDLE A LITTLE AFTER. Good or bad sign? He floats but still CAN make it. If he can survive the head injury, I read that Bettas can live with a swim bladder problem if accommodated.)

Often, with the right care, it can go away. It doesn't look like a swim bladder problem.

He's mostly just like in the picture, except in the top. He swam a little when I went over there. I'm so worried about the little guy. If he'd eat it would make things seem a bit better..

Try raising the temp a few degrees? Maybe 82-84? Its worth a shot, i mean...

Its okay, some bettas dont eat for 3 weeks and r fine! Try not offering food for s bit and see if he strats to miss it.

I would raise the temp if I could, but it is one that automatically heats to 78

We planned on getting a new one in a couple months anyways. Thanks for the info.

He's still alive today, do you think he'll pull through?
He's swimming a little more and sleeping at the bottom now. He's not acting like he did before he got hurt, but he's acting like he's in less of a coma.
