Although, from reading other threads of yours it seems you really shouldn't be taking on the responsibility of other bettas at the moment, I am glad you had the heart to try and help this little boy. The fact that you say he is in a warm tank tells me he is in a tank with a heater, which makes me happy.

Well, if you aren't quite sure whats wrong with him maybe you could explain more thoroughly how he looks 'sick' and post a picture or two? that way we can help determine if there is anything else we can do to help him. Starting with warm clean water and some aquarium salt will definitely help. just make sure to keep the water clean and try not to stress him too much

  1. what tank is he in now?
  2. what's the water temperature in the tank?
  3. how did you acclimate him from the store cup into the tank? (what, specifically, did you do to move him from the cup to the tank?
  4. what is the name of the "salt stuff" you added? And how much did you use?
Post pictures, if possible.

did you drip acclimate him or allow him to adjust to the different water temp and ph and such? or just drop him into the new tank?
