iv tried 4 different occasions to put him in a bigger tank.. he seemed to only like the 1g tho o.0 i once pushed it for him to be in a 2.5 [few months back]and he went on with his "i hate you im not gona eat" spell.. for two weeks.. i gave in and put him back cuz i felt i was killing him..

but indeed warm water does. well except ick, i HAD to get medicine for that no amount of warm water could heal the scar it would have made on my tank lol.

i suppose ill keep watching him and pray its maybe a sore tat goes away? :C i was hoping to breed him in a month or two now idk if i can or if itd arm him :S

couldn't tell from the pics but are his scales "pineconing" at all? the reason i ask is that the lump is right where his kidney is, and kidney swelling is often caused by dropsy.

a "pineconed" betta for reference:

Our first male Fabio got a lump similar to this. He never seemed to really care, but the thing kept growing and growing and growing until I could tell it was starting to inconvenience him greatly in his ability to swim properly. Eventually it got so big, I was sure it was going to burst if it got any bigger...

We had to put him down..

I hope your boy makes it out alright though.
