Help! Not sure what to do at this point

So my betta...flare has become ill and im not really sure where to head with this.
he is in a 10 gallon tank that is full to about 6-7 gallons. with a heater keeping it at 77F but NO filter.

he was good the first few days but then the tank become to cloudy to see, so he was transfered and when the tank cleared up we put him back in. since then he appears to have serious fin rot that wont go away

within the last 3 days he has compltly stopped eating and the underside of his belly is very pale....white almost clear

ive changed his water daily as well as added epsom salt

what now?

Hi Justin and welcome to the forum. I'm sorry your guy is so ill.

Can you answer a few questions for me?
First, how often do you change the water and how much do you take out?
Why did his tank become cloudy?
Is he bloated?
Have you seen him poop and does it look like normal poop? (sorry, gross question, I know)
Can you get a pic of his fin rot?

Not having a filter shouldn't be a problem at all and it's good you have a heater. Right now, it sounds like your boy may possibly have a bacterial infection or is constipated. Usually when the belly goes pale, it's a sign of something internal.

How much epsom salts did you use?

Let me know so I can work out a diagnosis.
