I feed him another bloodworm and he ate it. But it looks like he ate a small marble. The temperature is about 75-76 degrees. Maybe he is cold?
Live foods got it. I will try them. I don't have access to live Mosquito larvae, though.

So he is bloated? some Betta are more sensitive to temp than others, but good idea on raising the temp, you may want to try Epsom salt 1tsp/gal along with 100% daily water changes while in QT.
Not eating and then bloat in not a good sign.....
And no skeeters in Arkansas...

He is not really bloated, I checked on him just now, today. And it has went down. But I don't seen any waste. Hmmmm. I could try some Epsom salt. He was more active, when I was adding Aquarium salt.

Not where I am at, anyway. I have flies and dragonflies like crazy here.

If he has not eaten in 3 weeks you may not see a lot of waste.
If he is not bloated I would not use the Epsom salt, your last post stated that he looked like he ate a marble...so I guess that is where I got the bloat...sorry...

Okay. Well it did and then it went down after 24 hours. I am guessing it takes him a little bit longer to digest something. He did live in a tiny Petco cup for almost a whole year.
