Fishkeeping is a learning process, if the keeper is willing to learn and change then yes, it can be his thing. That's not your judgment call to make and discouraging remarks like that are never helpful.
For the OP, I'd suggest going back to the original thread and following the link that okiemavis posted for you, we need information before we can really and truly help you and when you do your testing please us an API freshwater master kit and use that because test strips are useless. Post everything in here and we'll do our best :) I would also suggest going to the Betta Care sticky and reading up on bettas, it's pretty much all the practical knowledge packed into one space.
