hey guys i just got a new betta from petsmart about two days ago he looked a little sick when i got him but i though he would perk up once i got him home,but i think he has gotten worst. he has popeye i just started treating him this morning, his fins are clamped, he did have rapid gill movement which i think has gotten a little better, hes sluggish and doesn't eat much, and sometimes it seems like he QUITES MOVING and he's been TWITCHING! his water has been tested and it is fine.
he's in a 3 gal with a whisper filter and water heater. temp is about 79. i've read a lot of disease symptoms, could he have TB or are these normal popeye symptoms? i had to do a 100% water change last night cause thats when we noticed his popeye, and he has perked up a tiny bit like hes swimming a little more. if you might know whats wrong with him please let me know.

Twitching or flashing/flicking? I am suspecting external parasites.
