thanks for the support guys, I really appreciate it. I'm definitely going to get a new betta at some point. From a breeder this time, not from petco. The only reason I'd ditch the tank is because I already have a larger one that I was waiting to put Dahli into when I got him set up.

I'm thinking he had a form of columnaris. There are 2 versions. One that kills quickly and one that lingers on for a while before killing the fish. He also looks like his scales are sticking out which is a sign of dropsy and dropsy is usually a sign of some other illness - organ failure, internal bacterial infection, ect.
