Just in response, I got home from work. Little guy is almost gone.... Honestly, I just found out that I'm out of aquarium salt somehow... I had a protazoan medicine, that honestly I gave to him out of desperation. I have no clue how he's going to fare at this point, but I'm going under the assumption that the medicine will either work, or he'll be dead in the morning. I'll give ye an update when I wake up.

He bit it, he was fighting but... You know, I've never had a fungus spread so fast. There was a tiny bit in the morning and about 8 hours it almost completely covered his body.

Sorry to hear about your betta. Try including pictures or describing how bad the condition is when posting to this type of forum. This will allow people to better understand how serious a situation is. Treating for bacteria/fungus with meds right off may have given him a better chance.

Poor little fella. I'm sorry.
8 hours is awfully fast. I would suspect columnaris. A fast multiplying gram negative bacteria. You will need to disinfect the tank IMO. Disinfect anything that has come Ito contact with the tank. It can be spread to other tanks easily.

It didn't appear to be stringy like columnaris is but more fluffy like a fungus. The store did accept the return an the blame, as it did acclimate him properly, and I find it hard to believe that water conditions would be so incredibly poor in a matter of days and they had been very consistently clean with my shrimp.

IME it's fuzzy around the head, mouth and back. Usually accompanied by fin rot/tattered fins.
Anyways. Its good your getting a refund. Again, I'm sorry for your loss.
