Ah i see so while he is in the bowl it acclimatises him to the salt and then it isnt such a big shock for him when he goes back to his tank. Thanks ill definitely try this.

Its also a higher concentration of salt for a short period of time to kill anything and help him heal. Salts also good for their gills I think.

It could still be coloring and deformity. My betta has "curls" on both his top fin and his ventral fins, and one is white, but it's always been white. How long have you had the fish?

One of mine has the same thing... it's almost like his ventral fins are growing longer, but the back part of his fin stays the same length and creates a bent part at the end (I think of it as feet). Mine have aquarium salt in with them and they are in a divided 20 gal, so have 5 gals to themselves. Not really sure what it is, but hasn't affected my guy one bit.
