I am sorry for your loss. My mom's eye docter had a dragon betta that was eaten by his wife's cat.

you should always acclimate. The tissue you see is probably just part of his gill flap.

Try again I lost fish this way before. Buy some water conditioner bc tap water isn't safe for fish

Bettas are tough fish. They can survive bad water conditions, because they can breath air at the surface, but you still have to prepare the water.
