I just got my first Betta fish from a local market fish seller without knowing anything about the fish's age and gender. the fish is very slow and stays at the bottom of the round tank most of the time. it also splits out food and it's fin and tails are sort of ripped. I want to know if it has any illnesses

I'm sorry as I am not really sure about the water quality as I do not have the equipments but I will try my best to answer

Freeze-dried? No
How often do you feed your Betta? How much? Twice a day and just a sprinkle

your Betta became ill how often did you perform a water change?
Once two days

Water Parameters:
What are your water parameters? Please give exact numbers. If tested by pet store please get exact numbers. "Fine" or "Safe" won't help us help you. Important: Test your water before the regular water change; not after one.
I'm sorry but I have no idea
Hardness (GH):
Alkalinity (KH):

I'm not actually sure that it is ill or not but after reading some articles online I have became really worried. But at the same time, I technically can't do anything about it as it is my cousin's fish😭
