How did you acclimate your betta to the new water?

I acclimated him the same way I do all my new fish,
Cut a small hole in the top of the bag for air, leave him float in the tank for 30 mins then add a cup full of water 3 times in the next 30 mins then release him. I dont like putting the stores water in my tank so I added water to replace what I'd lost.

My guess is that there was seriously wrong with him before you brought him own. Probably internally, maybe shock from treatment at the store. I'm betting that it's nothing that you did.

I went back to the store today and managed to get a credit out of them. I was going to get a replacement but all they had left where already paired up with females and they wouldnt sell them single.
He tested the water there to see what the PH was (mine is on the high side, not to much for a betta but higher them normal) so we where wondering if the difference was so big that he went into shock - it was around the same but they had fairly high nitrite and nitrate in the water so goodness knows what happened to the poor little guys! :(
