Might be a Tumor. But I do not know why it would get better. Glad he is recovering. What is his origin sorry did not read that thread.

How much do I feed him? a lot but not too much... More than I used to though. He looks miserable :( I've never seen anything like this before... I always feed him Omega One Natural Protein Formula Betta Buffet Pellets I don't know if that has anything to do with it though. It also looks like he is developing a cataract on his left eye so I don't think that's the case. O_o

Contact Sakura8 or Oldfishlady quickly! Meanwhile, keep him in a QT tank and add in some IAL or Oak Leaves. I'm so sorry. :(
