A 1.5 Gallon ...you said you had a heater but do you have any type of filter? Even with a filter on a 1.5 Gallon tank you should be doing a 25% water change every few days..this is probebly causing your Bettas health to deteriorate ..your amonia & nitrates sre probebly really high at this point ..but heres what to do:
Purchase a 2.5 Gallon (at least)but if you can't just follow these directions
Purchace a nano type filter ( a Red Sea Nano or Azoo Palm filter)
get a container and save a small amount of your water ( not from the bottom), dump the rest it is probebly pretty bad, rinse the gravel and tank..don't use any cleaners!,put your water in , fill with new water, Use declorinator as per the directions on the amount of water you have, get your filter running, put your heater back in, Put your fish in and then every few days change out @25% of your water be sure you suck up poo and uneaten food off the bottom with either a small piece of tubing or a turkey baster..see the "Sticky for further info on Betta care.
Good Luck and welcome to the Forum
