Just additional stuff: I did clean the tank before the new fish was put in. A plastic plant is still inside.
Nothing right, unfortunately.
-Your tank should be at least 2.5 gallons. More is better.
-Water changes in a 1/2 gallon tank should be every day.
-Temperature has to stay constant at above 78 degrees.
-You need a heater. I cannot stress on how importnt that is for a betta. A low-flow filter is nice also.
As said, other members and I have put together a sticky for general betta care in the Anabantids forum. It should target all of this.
