How is his swimming? Is he fairly active? What are you feeding? Sometimes fish do not realize what we offer is food if it is something other than what they've been fed. It takes a while for them to figure it out. I'm not one for giving in, but if he is already physically compromised you might 1) try frozen bloodworms and Brine shrimp; or, 2) ask what the store was feeding.

And I mean frozen; not freeze dried. To feed, scrape off a bit, let thaw and then offer using blunt tweezers or an eye dropper.

Let us know what else you need.

Betta get help

So I bout a rose petal male from petco (We all hate them as far as I know) and it was the only one there. Unfortunately my little friend is basically a vegetable, he has severe scoliosis and will not eat, or poop, or anything besides come up for air. Itís been almost a week and if anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it. I know it may be a lost cause but Iíve grown attached to my floppy crooked fishy and I really donít want him to die.
