I believe the word is anti-parasitic. I speak Spanish :P But yeah, there are so many anti-parasitics out there that I wouldnt know which to choose.

I've heard jungle parasite or something or other works well, I haven't used it myself, though. If you start feeding him again definitely try soaking the food in garlic, it may help a little.



On a very, very side note I realized you were playing Hollywood Undead in the background of that video. (<3)

I couldn't find any anti-parasitic meds. My PetCo just had Melafix, Coppersafe, Bettafix, and maybe Maracyn? Didn't get any of those. It's day 5 on the epsom salt treatment. Still bloated. Looks like he swallowed a marble. He's not any worse but not any better either. Tried (several times) to feed him a piece of pea today. Shows no interest in food. Hope he gets better.

He surely looks unwell. ! I don't think he could swallow a marble. It would be blocking his intestines and, as it seems from picture 1, he's still pooping white. Maybe you should try some anti-parasitic?

I dont have any marbles in the tank - was just using it as a figure-of-speech to describe how he looks. Like I said, I was unable to find any anti-parasite treatment at my petco. Will go to a local fish store and see if they have anything.

Yeah. This is the second one that has dies on me. I think I may take a break from bettas for a while as I seem to be no good at keeping them alive.
