Do you see anything wrong with him physcially? Any bumps, torn fins, things you hadn't seen before?

I'd stop feeding him the tropical flakes, btw. They're not really meant for bettas.

When did you last change his water? And I'm assuming you treat the water when you change it, right?

okay thanks for the help but after looking long and hard last night i discovered that he has ick...i noticed some salt grain looking things on his rear fin and noticed he was resting underneath the filter intake and rubbing on everything and swimming like mad man.... i immediately went to wal-mart and got some aquarium salt and wardleys ick away with main ingredient malachite green...i also raised the water temp to 80-84 degrees....ANY THING ELSE I SHOULD BE DOING? i would love as much advice as possible never dealt with ick before.
