I have had problems with the tank ever since my son tipped a whole tub of fish food in his tank, it took me ages to clean it. That's why I thought i was getting algae. Could it of been that?

so sorry for all problems :( Is he still eating? Is he active or lethargic. Did he get worse behaviourwise ? Fins problem can be due to parasites. When you change him just wash the tank very well with water. Just water is enough. Should be fine. Don't forget to dry out a net and changing container after each use.

Just lower the water level in his tank so he can't jump out. If you don't have a lid for the changing container and for the tank you can take plastic wrap and make hole in it ,and just cover the top . I know some bettas so difficult to even couch when we changing them. Just try to cover the net with your hand. I have a betta that takes me longer to couch than change. So sometimes i even use my hands . I know it better do not do it but....i just have to sometimes. And i always scoop them with a cup and cover it with my hand.

Just to make sure every time when you change him you are adding medications and the salt right?

Yes there is a filter, yes I add the medication and aquarium salt each change. He isn't eating, I haven't seen him eat for 2 days now, he is swimming around but also rests a lot. I use a small jug to move him from the tank when changing not a net.

They can go weeks without eating. Try live food.
