I'm sorry :( Was hoping he'd pull through. Usually when they get to the point of pineconing, they normally don't recover. :( Poor guy.. you did all you could, and that matters.

I betta can usually go 4-6 weeks without food.
IMO, it sounds like parasites to me too. I'd go with Myates' advise.

I hope he gets better!
Can bettas really go up to 6 weeks without food??
I've heard 2 weeks

Creamcookie- I'm sorry for your loss :(
