Beta has fin rot, but that does not account for her sudden behavior change. Alpha is either in shock from something in the water( temperature, forgot water conditioner) or they somehow fought and he is injured.

Do a 90% water change right now, leave just enough so you don't have to take him out. Fill a bucket or large bowl, and stick a thermometer in to make sure it is 78-80 degrees BEFORE you pour it in with him.

This is very important, I just noticed Betas whole bottom half looks grey colored. Was she always like this? Or is this new? Does Alpha have the grey on him too?

Wow... Poor guys. I agree with blufish425 and anhel. It looks like something happened during the water change....

Do water changes in BOTH tanks, ASAP! Add 1.5 times the regular amount of Aqueon Betta Bowl Plus Water conditioner to the new water.

Here are some directions that can help:
  1. Immediately add 1 teaspoon of your Aqueon Betta Bowl Plus Water conditioner to the smaller (1 gal) tank.
  2. Immediately add 2 teaspoons of the Water conditioner to the larger (2.5 gal) tank.
  3. Note the temperature of the tank water. (Use a thermometer.)
  4. Fill a 1 gallon container with one gallon of water at the SAME temp. (Within +/- 2 degrees F, or 1 degree C.)
    (Use a thermometer.)
  5. Add 1.5 TEASPOONS (7.5 mL) of Aqueon Betta Bowl Plus Water Conditioner & Dechlorinator.
  6. Remove 25-30% of the water from each tank. Refill to the same level using the water that you've just prepared.
  7. Wait for at least 15 min.
  8. Do three more 25-30% water changes, waiting at least 15 minutes between each.
