He's looks fine. His fins are like that beacause he's a crowntail. The patches are just coloring. I would add more water, a heater, and more plants.

I think he lowered water maybe because he's having a hard time swimming to the surface. I think he just needs some TLC and quality betta food.

LOL I used to have that gravel too! (See my Avitar photo) But now I changed mine to Black gravel mixed with florescent bits of gravel.
