bettafix isn't the most reliable medicine. Its been known to cause big problems with bettas. The betta plus is fine. I wouldn't recommend medicating for bitten or ripped tails (they can heal on their own for that) infact pristine water conditions for about a week can cure most things by itself. I would do another 100% water change but dont put the bettafix in there.

I didn't say it never works, I just said its not reliable, which is the general census of the people on here. Some swear against it and some says it works. but I stand by what I said. If he's just healing a ripped or bitten tail you don't need to medicate.

I would change it today. Better safe then sorry. Did the lethargy start after you introduced the bettafix?

He could be suffering from Fin rot... I would change the water often and buy a medicine at your local Petstore.

Ok good, just got to make sure its not that. With that being said you don't have to do the water change. Did you rinse the heater before putting it in? What temp does the thermometer say? It sounds like he's either to warm or to cold. Hmmm he doesn't have any fuzzies, he's not bloated, his scales aren't pineconed out and he doesn't have fin rot right?

Edit: @ jenjen there isn't any black edges on the fins...
