what do you mean his bowl? He was recently moved to a 2.5 gallon tank, so that is what I have him in. And in doing the salt baths, does the size of the container I do it in matter?

No. I give salt baths in the cups my bettas came in. I mix it in a gallon jug then fill the smaller container.

ok, but along with salt baths should I do wc's of 100% every day, or every 3-4 days?

is the 2.5 filtered and cycled? if so then only do 50% changes, if not then do 100% daily until healed. In an uncycled tank you can not change it too often, well ok maybe 30 ties a day is too often, but once daily while treating for fin rot is fine.

Thanks Neenjar! I will start the salt baths today, and I have been changing the water 100% for two days now...hopefully he responds well to the treatments
