Unhappy body rot?!?!?!

Poor Posiden! I think he has body rot! He has a pach of scales missing and it looks like hes suffering. When ever he toches any thing he always flinches away like it hurts. Hes sleeping alot more than usual too. (always behind the heater or filter) Im starting him on some betta revive in a small holding tank. Im going to start changing the watter 100% 3 times a week. (It did not start out as fin rot)

If you have any tips on how to help my poor babby pleas dont hesatate to inform me.

Pleas no rude coments. Thank you.

Is he in a tank with sharp plants or decorations? One of my dragon bettas scratched his scales on a plastic plant that I had, but his scales never came off.

Changing the water 100% sounds like a good idea to me.

How often did you change your water before Posiden got this anyway?
