Great news, his current tank mate might actually pull through this Chystrid fungus. It's a struggle but things are looking up and I'm thinking in November after the tank is nuked they can be reunited.
And Rainbow that isn't true for all fish. My betta is actually better off WITH company. Without he was shreading his tail, when I added Bilbo he stopped, even sat on the bottom of the tank with him and since I moved Bilbo from the tank into a hospital tank what do I see but that he is chewing up his tail again. Some betta's actually enjoy company. Every one is different. Before giving out such advice I think you should take that into consideration that no two betta's are the same. I know betta's who even get along with shrimp, just saying yours may be agressive to other fish but mine enjoys his frog.
