Poor fishie. If he is suffering from poisioning, I would think ammonia poisining would be the most likely suspect - every single betta i got from petco had an ammonia reading of over 4.0 I am wondering if they took water from one of the larger fish tanks and used it for the bettas - that would explain the nitrAte poisioning symptoms...

I got one from walmart that was in about the same condition. what I did was I slowly took out his tank water and replaced it with clean water using a syringe. He could not swim at all the 1st few nights. I kept him in the cup and floated him in a heated tank and used amquel plus as I heard it may help with ammonia poisioning. I also used IAL. After 4 or so days he started eating and would try and flair with is "tank mate". At this point I moved him into his own tank with about 2 inches of water with epsom salt. It took about 5 weeks but he can swim normally now. I dont really know what happened to cause him to swim with a straight back. I left alaska it was crooked and when we got to New York - 10 days later, he could swim fine

The night I took him home

Oh no, I'm sorry. He passed with people who cared and in clean warm water, which I'm sure he would thank you for if he could.

I'm very sorry to hear that.
But at least he got some good care and love to send him off! ♥
