Hello, My little sister's betta has been bloated for a little while now.
I have tried the Epsom salt treatment, Fasting and changing his diet to frozen bloodworms, but nothing seems to help.
Today, while I was checking on him, I noticed that he was passing feces, but that they were white and stringy with little pieces of brown waste mixed in.
Would this indicate parasites? If so, do any of you know how to make him better?
Tank size: 10 gallon
Heater: 76-80 F
Betta Age: 3 years?
Any other fish: No
Water changes: Not super frequently as this aquarium belongs to my 10 year old sister
Note: He is not acting lethargic at all and is eating without problems.
I have been getting him to flare so that he may pass feces, and he is very vigorous and active.
Whenever I come up to the tank, he gets very excited and swims around ferociously. He doesn't act sick, but his belly is quite swollen!
