Asking for more help with Blue, my Betta boy

thankyou Sakura for all your help previously. Since getting Aquarium Salt and heater it seems my Blue is doing better. His back injuries are almost gone and the scales seem to be growing back. There is one thing that is troubling me tho, all of a sudden he won't eat! is not interested in the pellets he has loved since I brought him home! He hammocks on the leaves of the philodendron, or stays in the bottom of the fish bowl and won't come over to see me like he did before. Could he be mad at me? or stressed? or what?

His eyes seem to be better but his mouth looks a little swollen. I will try to take a picture and show you.

as for other information, here is list I didn't add last time

What size is your tank? 2 gal round glass bowl

Symptoms and Treatment
