Yes, please keep us posted. If he pulls out of this I would rename him Jesus (just trying to lighten things for you).

:(

Nooooo!

I would turn off all of the lights to let him get some relaxation; if you haven't already. Make sure his water level is much lower than normal...poor baby doesn't wanna get up for air much....

Yea, dont use salt, i dont think that will help since he has a open wound. The IAL would be the best choice for him right now. Make sure you keep his water extra clean, change it at least 50-80% everyday. Just leave his tank bare for now. If you have any tall silk plant or a betta hammock, put one in so that he can rest on it near the water line and breathe easier.

Sadly, it doesn't look good...Sometimes we have to make the hard choice and do what is right by the Betta. If you do want to try and treat-what I would recommend is high dose aquarium salt 3tsp/gal and heavy tannins in a low level QT-about 3in deep, low water temp 75-76F-Dim lit quiet location-hold food for now.
Don't worry about the salt stinging-fish don't perceive pain that way.

Good luck....

I'm at a loss of ideas. Does it show any signs of healing at all?
