There are a few things here if you can clarify!
Are you housing the tetras and the betta together? I've heard tetras can be a little nippy.
Did you put in a leaf from an aquatic plant?
Is there anything in his orginal tank that he could have gotten caught on? Sharp plastic plants, rocks etc..whatever..
Don't put the mirror in anymore until we figure this out. He's already stressed and doesn't need the extra stress from a mirror.

I'd probably do a water change with treated water, keep him warm and alone, some might say add aq salt but I don't do this so someone else can advise..

thanks i dont think it's the tetra the tetra seem to know he doesent like to be bothered and i think he was stressing them out! lol but anyways thank goodness hes still alive his colour is staying and he seems to have made a little bubble nest in the little container but im still worried beacause he isent eating!! to be honest he was a little bloated so i tried fasting him but then one day after fasting him for 4 days i went to check up on him and i saw a tetra hanging out of his mouth!! to be honest it's like his stomache Exploded i really hope that isnt the case im now daily changin the water in the container. and it was a leaf from a live plant i put in there and yes it's aquatic. and for the sharp plants and rocks nodda Nothhing at all i made sure of that but he seems to of liked sticking to the filter wich i got really worried about. but then when i got him to eventually stop for a couple of days he would sit by the heater for hours on end and he seems to be losing colour on his scales his fins are still bright though
