Need help with my betta!!!

My betta "Blue" is not going very well, the past few days he is loosing parts of his tail and can see stuff flaking off of him when he moves suddenly. He is not eating and is swimming funny. He hangs out around the bottom of his bowl, and sometimes he comes up to the top. His color is fading... he is not the same... he lives in a large bowl, i clean it every 3-5 days, i put water conditioner it his bowl, i cant figure it out...can someone help me???

Tank size (gallons)?
How long have you had him?
How longhas the tank been setup?
Water Params?

Sorry for the questions, but we need to know these.

Its fin rot, your bowl/tank is too small, your not changing his water often, and you probably dont have a heater.
