Red...is dead

I rescued this fish from Walmart 3 days ago. I realized when I got him home he did not look that healthy. He had clamped fins.
He would hang out on the side of the tank on the top or bottom, sometimes he would just go crazy in circles around the bottom and then I noticed yesterday so white around his head and back.
He was pretty red.

so sorry for your loss;( Do you have other bettas ? Did you share anything between them? Not sure what he might had but in case he might had external parasites wash everything with hot water and let it air dry for 4-5 days before you put another betta in that tank.

Let us know in a little bit how are all your fishy doing. I just was really afraid if he might had ich or gill flukes. Good luck!

Rest In Peace Nester and Chester who were 2 of my Male Bettas. :( They shared a divided 10 gallon tank and both got sick with what I believe was tail rot. I treated the tank with Kanaplex 3 times but they still died. First was Nester my Dumbo Eared Betta, Then it was Chester my Orange Dalmatian Betta.

RIP My little fish friends :(

sorry for all your bettas. Do you have more bettas left? I read a lot of people saying that bettas more likely stressed in the community tanks. Not sure if all your betta were in the community tanks but i am wondering why they don't live longer .
What are your water parameters? What is the water changes schedule?
