    Why are you adding Aquarium salt? Don't reply here.... go to the your thread, and reply there. That way, all of the information will be in one place.... Right now, everything is scattered on profile pages, in PMs and on the thread. It's much easier to view it when it's all in one place. The best place to put it is on your thread. That way, lots of people can see it and help you.

    When was the last time you fed him?

    Does he look better, worse, or the same since you added the Epsom salt on Wednesday?

    1) When did you add the Epsom salt? (What day? Was it on Friday April 25th?) It can take a day or two to work.

    2) Did you get the New Life Spectrum Betta pellets OR Omega One Betta Buffet pellets? These foods cause less digestive problems than other brands.

    3) The "lump" at towards the back is called the Swim Bladder. It helps him swim. There's normally a small bulge/bump there.

    4) The "lump" between his front fins (pectoral fins) is his abdomen. It's slightly bloated right now. The Epsom salt and a switch to either New Life Spectrum or Omega One should help.

    How is he doing?

    1) Get Epsom salt at the local supermarket (Walmart, Publix, Kroger, etc). The container should say Magnesium sulfate. Be sure it has NO dyes or perfumes in it. (Cost is about $1.)
    Put some tank water into a cup. Stir in 1 teaspoon Epsom salt. When the salt is completely dissolved, pour the solution back into the tank. This will help him but it may take 1 or 2 days to work.

    2) You are taking EXCELLENT care of them. BUT you have two bettas in a 2.5 gal tank, so you need to do more water changes. (Ammonia and toxins build up very quickly in the shared tank.) Either do one 100% and one 50% water change per week - or get a new 2.5 gal tank so they're not sharing.

    3) Stop feeding peas, freeze-dried bloodworms & Aqueon pellets. All three can could have caused his problem. Instead, get either New Life Spectrum Betta pellets OR Omega One Betta Buffet pellets. These two brands are well-tolerated by Bettas, and cause less digestive issues.
