We got our new betta last Thursday. The first day he seemed fine and was swimming around and active, but since he has been lethargic, hiding and hanging out at the bottom of his tank. He has been ignoring food since the first day as well. Today I noticed he has what i think is white poop hanging off him. Not sure how to treat it if he has internal parasites. Advice?
5 gallon filtered tank (not cycled) with 4 live plants and a light.
heated to 78 degrees
Amonia: less than .25
I previously used Stress coat to condition the water, but just switched today to Prime because our tap has ammonia in it. Just did a 50% water change this morning.
Trying to feed him NLS pellets, but he ignores them. Picked up some flakes to try but he ignored those too. Not sure what other info you might want/need. Thank you for the help!
