Like everyone else said, clean water! I also like to use tannins in my water by making almond and oak leaf extract.
Keep his water really clean and add tannins. Id also reccomend a heavily live planted tank and lots of hides.He has 1 cory catfish and a few MTS. Here are his current pics after feeding.

Has he been flairing or showing any sighns of aggresion at the male betta on the other side of the clear divider?
Why does he have a single cory in with him? Corys need a min of a 10 pref 20 gallon and will get depresed and die withoutt there own kind.
I would reccomend adding some variety into his diet. My bettas love frozen brine shrimp.
What does "I try to feed him once a day" mean? Does he sometimes not get fed if you dont get time? Bettas need to be fed atleast twice a day.
Ok. I wouldnt do freeze dried, frozen is better. That should hopfully help his digestion.I am looking for some stress coat and IAL on amazon. Also, I do have a couple coconut hides too. I have a big clump of java fern that he likes to hide in sometimes. I don't have any bigger aquarium plants that he could hide in. At first he was pretty aggressive with the other male betta but now I don't see him flare at Neptune anymore. I had a school of six corys but the other ones died out. Once this one dies, I will probably replace him with mystery snails. I am also going to look for frozen blood worms or something like that. What I meant by "I try to feed him once a day" was That I sometimes forget a day but I then I fast him that day. But I feed him sinking shrimp pellets that he LOVES! He also gets bloated really easily so that's why I don't feed him 2x a day.
Are freeze dried ok?
PetZone carries them behind the betta shelf\section in a mini freezer on the left side of the paludarium.Where can I get frozen bloodworms/brine shrimp?
