I had an SBD betta whose entertainment was to attack you whenever he saw you. Despite being half out of the water on his side It also took months to get him completely better. And that was still with relapses!

It could end up chronic. If so, just make sure he can get food and breathe :)

Thank you, he can get food and can breathe fine. It's still not clearing up very well. It's slowly getting better, so maybe just more time. He is still doing the turbo swimming thing then taking a big gulp of air, but not as much as before.
On a side note, I cleaned his tank the other day and when I was pouring the water back in, his new plant bulb floated in front of his preferred entrance to his pineapple and he was not a happy camper. It wasn't blocking the entrance, but due to his swimming issue, he couldn't enter straight on, and it made him mad. He actually flared at it! Then he started head butting it! I stuck my turkey baster in there and moved it out of the way, but it took him until today to go back into his pineapple.

I want to praise you for helping that Betta. I saw an Oscar at Petco with one eye. If I could get an Oscar it would be that one. It made the one eye work for it. It would look at then turn around to get full vision.

Thanks! It was my friend's rescue betta. The owner never cleaned the tank (guppies, the betta and a pleco) for over 6 months and the only thing that survived was the betta. whose rotted fins were falling off, and was so bloated x.x

My CT does the motorboat too as I call it. Just one of his quirks. I wouldn't worry about it to much unless he is slamming into the tank wall or decor.
