Please ignore the previous post, they aren't very nice to any one.

Your fish looks like he has SBD, don't feed him this week and dose Epsom salt.

You're tank is also to small with not enough water changes, please upgrade to at least a 2.5. With a heater of course, 72 is not warm enough for a Betta to be active and happy.
any ideas where to find that salt? sorry!

sounds great, i will see what i can do about the tank size, the temperature is just a guess to be honest. i do not have a heater, but there is a light to help with the temperature a little.
