If he's in a 1/2 gallon tank and you only have it filled halfway then he's in hardly any water at all. With such a small amount of water you need to change it every day - even with the full 1/2 gallon. I suggest you 1) stop the bettafix as mentioned above and 2) get the fish a larger container as a home.

He's usually in a full tank of water, I didn't fill it up today since I read on this site to only fill it half way so he can breathe better. There is way to much conflicting information out there! I just want him to get better, we have had him so long and this is our first time to deal with any type of illness. Hopefully the epsom is the magic trick :)

I don't think you ever mentioned the temperature of the water. What is it? thanks!
