Raising the temp also raises the betta's immune system, though!

The immune system won't immediately repair itself on sensing higher temperatures. But a fungal disease (true or bacterial) loves sudden toasty warmth and perceives this a great excuse to go forth and multiply.

Better to knock it on the head, then do a slow increase in temp for the sake of a stronger immune system so as to hopefully avoid further ilness.

Well he is on day 5 with no change. It doesnt appear to be getting better, but its not getting worse either. I am thinking I need to dose with something else now. I dont want the salt weakening him to much in his already week state.

I swear these fish love to spend our money. When I left he still had fuzz on his tail. I get home and what do you know. Its gone. Guess I will just keep the meds for future.

Yeah, he still has a little on his top fin so hopefully it clears up. He is just really slowing down. I can tell he is fighting. I made him a little hammok so he is closer to the surface. He really likes it. While I will be sad to see him go, sometimes I just wish he would I can tell he is suffering, and just seems to sad.

Dropping the temperature makes the fish lethargic and slows down body processes.

I never dropped the temp. Its the same as it has always been. He has just slowed down. like I said in the first post he is 3-4 years old possibly even older depending on how old he was when he arrived at walmart.
