Unhappy ONE EYED WILLY had taken a turn for the worse.

I was checking on him a few minutes ago because I saw him laying at the bottom of his tank he went up for air and he didn't make it! it got half way there and looked like he almost passed out and just layed at the bottom I waited for like 10 seconds to see if hes get back up but they I scooped him up in a net and put him in the cup he came in with some of his water from his tank. he is not doing well at all, the white spots where he had scale loss has turned bright red, I had been giving him salt treatment and changing his water everyday he had started to look really good until just now,

But he got worse he wasn't swimming up even to the distance of the cup, now he is laying on the lid i placed in there for him, he swam onto the lid and is laying so close to the surface so all he has to do is lift his head to breathe.

I fear his end might be soon I don't know what to do.

EDit, I did not mean to post two posts. Oops

If he does pass in the next few hours, which seems almost imminent , at least he got to live in paradise for the last few days of his life with lots of room, things to explore and warm clean water.

You know, sometimes Bettas pull through even when you think they're going to die. One night I went to check on Merlin and he couldn't even swim. he was lying on his side at the surface of the water. I ran downstairs and panicked, and came to the conclusion that I should just leave him there until he died. I went to check on him next morning, and he was back to normal.
