he became lethargic and stopped eating about a week ago
so i got a heater to maintain warm temperatures now that summer is over
Then I noticed one of his fins has signs of fin rot
so I did a full water change 3 days ago and added uniodized sea salt this time
And then yesterday i purchased "Betta Revive" and followed the instructions and he was appearing better, he even swam to the surface and attempted at a bloodworm.
He occasionaly goes to the surface and then will kind of "fall" back to the bottom like he is weak.
Today, he is laying on his side, and his eyes are fuzzy/white, what I have concluded is fungus. He seems way worse. So I immediately put him in a new container with temperature-matched water with stress coat, proper dose of Betta revive, and the salt. I was worried that the fungus persisted in his aquarium through the rocks and plants so I thought to get him out of there.
I don't know where to go from here. The appearance of his eyes looks like he's close to dying.
