Pity purchase from Petsmart not doing well..

So I caved and bought a betta from petsmart yesterday, he is reaaallllyyyy skinny, has fin rot and isn't eating or moving around too much. His color is really dull also.

I have him in a small 1 gallon hospital tank I gave him a second dose of melafix today. I tried feeding fish flakes and brine shrimp but he wasn't interested in them even when the brine shrimp were swimming around his face! I had an airstone bubbling in his tank but I turned it off for fear of stressing him out too much.

I was just wondering if there was anything I could do to speed along his recovery.

Thanks in advance!

you could give him an Epsom Salt Bath... I don't know the whole instructions but OLDFISHLADY does, you can pm her.
