Ok lol. What should I get for the fin rot? Can I use meds + salt ? I put some of those bloodworms in yesterday and they went everywhere lol. I hope he isnt constipated already.

For the fins, clean water and maybe some Stress-Coat. No salt unless you can't get them to heal.
Did you get those bw's out? The ones he didn't eat? He looks like he ate about 7 of them by his little beer gut LOL. Were you able to get some pellets? Some people have problems getting their bettas to eat pellets after they have been spoiled with bw's, so be prepared. Also, soak the pellets first before feeding.

I am changing water about 50% every day right now since I have a small ammonia spike from switching substrates. I took out as many BW as I could. I am otw to the store right now and will be picking up some pellets and meds.

If I soak the bws also will that help him from getting bloated?

And I will try to get him to eat pellets lol

I also plan on getting frozen BW for him and my puffer soon

Skip out on anything freeze dried for bettas. Make him eat the pellets, and don't feed him anything if he won't eat them. Do not try feeding him anymore until his belly goes down though.

I'm not getting anymore at this point. We just lost our whole tank of them a couple of weeks ago.

Well Mr. Betta seems to be doing a lot better. He comes up to me now when I go over to the tank. He is still a little bloated but it is going down. Added some Stress Coat and did another water change, probly 40%. I saw a couple spots on him, so I am hoping it is just bubbles and not ich. I will keep an eye on him for this.

How long do you think before his fins will start to heal? And, is there some type of floating plant I can get for him- he likes to be under the anchor I have in there.

I want to see a bubble nest Then I will know he is happy

Bubble nests don't necessarily mean they are happy, just that they are ready to spawn LOL. Mine seem to make alot of them about every other month.
My bettas fins took about a week, it just depends on the rot. You will see a clear new growth, and it will eventually turn the color of the betta.
