Extrememly Inflamed Gills

Ok so I've gone through a bunch of fish disasters since I was gone. One betta (the one I need to continue a strain) has extrememly inflamed gills.

So his 'beard' is fully out as in he's not flaring but the beard part is really far out. It's like when a fish dies there gills come out...well it's like that.
If I look at him from above his head looks like a stingray :(


He is breathing heavily and not eating :(

His meds include: Jungle Ich Cure (he also has velvet), Ampicillin, and aquarium salt. I just lost my methylene blue and can't add that :(

I have no idea how to help inflamed gills. I'm so sorry I wish I could help. I hope someone else has some input.

You could try maracyn or Tetracycline. Both are for gill disease.
