Betta with severe SBD

I rescued a betta who was suffering from SBD six days ago, but I have seen no improvement. I fasted him for a few days, and finally got him to eat a pellet this morning, although it was really difficult for him since he can't swim upright very well. I just started on epsom salt treatments, so maybe that will help. I have also not noticed any poop in his hospital tank since I've had him. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help this little guy?

Epsom salt will help with the pooping as well as any excess fluid build up.

What temperature is the tank at? Raising it to 80-82 if you can will be very helpful with his digestive system.

Since you're using epsom salt, be sure to do 100% daily changes for at least 1 week.
