Poor little guy.. he looks so unhappy. He has lost his appetite, and his color has gone from bright red to a dull pinkish maroon. His gills seem swollen and his mouth looks torn up, like he's been making out with a pumas rock. He also has alot of sickly white looking areas around his face. What should I do? There are so many symptoms and I've been looking online all night.. I've found several things that could be wrong with him.

Please help?

Oh.. and email me if you can help me.
Thank you!

Sorry you are having problems...have a few questions..

How big is the tank, filtration, live plants, how much and how often are the water changes and when was the last one, water temp, additives used, and medication or treatments tried, how long have you had him and how long has he been sick?

With just the symptoms you describe fast action is needed-it sounds like bacterial rot/columnaris-

When betta losing color he really sick.
But white spots can be ICK. I saw fish with ICK.He start has white spots on his head and then it want to his body.He was really bad he stopped eating and swimming. We treated him with MARACIDE + AQUARIUM SALT. The MARACIDE BY BIOSPHERES WE gave him more then 2 cycles .But the betta completely recovered. Also someone told me that they had good experience to treat ICK,FUNGUS AND VELVET with medication ICK AWAY BY WARDLEYS.
