Exclamation Every minute he gets worse!Help he is about to die!

I don't know what to do Diego is about to die I did a thread about him being depressed but I changed it to updates on how he is doing he is just sitting in the bottom of the tank barely moving I had him in a 2 gallon with a filter I moved him to a small thing "made for bettas" even though it is way to small he can barely swim.He is getting worse every minute.He is breathing super hard.

He is not even moving now just breathing really hard he was not living in the small thing I moved him in it so he could get air I took some more water out so it would be easier for him to get to the top.but if he does move it's upside down =(

You might be ahead to put him in a cup of dechlorinated bottled water. With a -DROP- of stress coat or two.

OMGosh!!! Poor thing! Hopefully he'll turn around

There was this one time where DS was kinda like that, he just wouldn't move or eat. I prayed SO HARD because I had to leave for three days without medicating 'em. I come back and he's happy as a lark (NO KIDDING!) Hopefully he'll be alright...

It would be a good Idea if u lower water to 4-5 inches, that way he can reach the air easier. Poor thing...
