I am sorry to hear about your betta. It sounds pretty bad- don't be surprised if he doesn't make it. There is a chance of recovery, though- how long was he in the filter? Do you see any swollen parts or raised scales? I would recommend putting him in a separate quarantine if you have other fish (even other bettas) in the tank. He's in our prayers- good luck.

And yes his scales are raised a little bit and they look darker than his natural color and his back is a bit arched

Could you post some pictures? Clean water will certainly help

It’s okay if they are at the bottom of the tank- any pics would help us identify the problem. If Devin’s wounds look inflamed you can try dosing his tank with antibiotics, but most important during his time of healing is clean water.
