This is going to sound kindof crazy but, can betta fish have allergies?Maybe antoine is allergic to IAL?I just looked it up on google and this is what it brought up:

he looks dead :( one of them is him in the middle of swimming away. and the cat magazines are what i use to keep the tank level... you cant see in the pictures, but his scales are slightly pinconing and he looks like he has fin rot... the tips of his fins are dark and theres this white stringy kind of stuff on them...

He looks really far gone >.<
I feel horrible saying this but you should prepare yourself to lose him. My eyes are watering just looking at him, I got kinda attached to him too :/
I'd message Sakura8 or OFL to look at him though.
Either way, I don't think you should give up on owning betta :)

I'm really sorry I think he's gone :(
I think the only thing you could try now is a salt bath, but I'm not sure it would work

Oh gosh. I am so sorry, but I agree.. I think you need to prepare yourself, he looks like he might not make it. My last fish ended up floating like that before he passed. :(

I'm just very sorry.

Don't give up on him, but be prepared for the worst just in case.

I can't see really well but the last pic looks like he has a bacterial problem if his fins have redish tips with goo on the ends. Aquarium Salts would be my best guess. (I'm not sure though) He looks pretty fragile right now though.

All you can do, is do your best. I believe even if you loose him, he will know you did your best to save him.

Maybe contact OFL and see what she thinks? Either way I hope your boy pulls through.

Best wishes

I'm sorry for your fish problems I know it can be frustrating when you are doing the best you can. and you did the best you could and you gave him your love which is the most important thing. there are other bettas out there that need just as much caring so you shouldn't give up on betta keeping. I had about three bettas before I got the perfect one

Awwh. Im sorry about your fishie.

I wouldn't give up on owning them though if you like having them. Maybe take a break for a while and keep an eye out for one that "speaks" to you. I lost about 20 in one shot when moving to alaska to NY in January but as long as there are bettas in need, I shall be there to save them
