Friend's Betta

A friend who just got her first betta about a month ago, let me know that she didn't think he was doing to well...

I took a look at him, and he had fin rot, so I gave her all the proper know hows there, and shes taking care of it...

What I didnt understand is she changed the water this morning when she noticed some slimey clear stuff floating around, and within 8 hours, it was like that again with it floating..

I wasnt sure what it was, can anyone help me out on this one?

hhmm... was it was on top of the water? if not, she could have just not rinsed everything well.

what size tank does she keep him in? and how often does she change his water?

1 Gallon, and she wasn't changing it as often as she should have.

I know have her doing 2 50% a week and 1 100% a week.

It looked like just slime floating through the water.

It could be extra slime coat. They tend to make extra when they are sick or stressed. Mine had tons of it after her jump out of the tank. It was everywhere, it took several cleanings to get it all out.
