I have no idea what could cause his fins to fall off like that. Poor little guy!

Hmm. That's about all you can do. Sorry. :(

Edit: Every part of the fins? Never heard of that. Possibly stress.

I know! And he still manages to come over to the glass when I walk towards him. :'( I'm so heartbroken.

:( The poor baby. Well at least he had a happy life with you instead of somebody who'd put him in a cup.

He could be around 3 years then because most pet stores sell them older. That's a pretty long life.

Yeah, he was pretty big when I got him too. Good thing I took him out of the tank with my VT Fantasia when I started noticing him acting weird. Fantasia is the longest living betta fish I've had ever!lol He loves having the big tank to himself, so he's happy.

Wow, that'd be tragic if they'd both gotten ill. How old is Fantasia?

You can find Epsom salt at any drug store, it's not uncommon (cause it's usually used in health and beauty stuff). Aquarium salt is good but Epsom salt is better.
