I did not mean to type all the euthanasia stuff as an end-all be-all. I simply put it there in case you need the info at a time nobody is online. If you can treat him with kanaplex then by all means.
However, I would stop the melafix. Tea tree oil is not a friend to anabantids like bettas and gouramis because it coats the labrynth organ they use to breathe air at the surface.
No, I understand. I appreciate it. I've ordered the Kanaplex (thank you SurfinCrab for the store reference) and I'm hoping my little guy can hold on until it gets here.
And no, I haven't seen him react to light, food, or currents at all. He just stays there unless I wiggle his tank and then he flips out. I have yet to see him actually go up to the surface, honestly. I saw it once the day before yesterday, but since I have not seen it.
