    Aww, that's so sad.
    Check and see if your betta has Ich (white spots) since it's a parasite and you can get medicine to cure him.

    Good luck!

    What kind of housing do you have him in? What are the water parameters? What cycling process did you use? Feel free to send me specific questions, if I can discuss specifics with you then I can probably help out. I also have a number of hubs published on fish care, including this one for bettas:

    That said, I have over 15 years' experience with them, and would gladly help you figure out what's wrong with this particular fish. Also, regardless of what the packaging says, generally unless it was refrigerated there are no actual living organisms left in it.
