The reason I said to keep the tank dark is for his stress lines but if your adamant that that is just the picture then you don't have to keep them off.

Only use the aquarium salt for 10 days or less. Prolonged use of aquarium salt can cause liver and/ or kidney failure in bettas. Use temps 82-84* to help speed metabolism and cell growth. Do daily water changes during the 10 days you have the aquarium salt because there is nothing that will heal a fish better than clean water.. after that he should be good.

Bottled water isn't necessarily good (lacks the minerals/vitamins) but would probably be the 2nd or backup water source if tap water is pretty screwed up. In my opinion, anyway.

And yeah, AQ seems to affect their kidney/livers after prolonged use. 10 days should be good, but I'm not sure how long until it really goes "bad" (but not in expiration sense).
