Epsom salt treats internal. I believe its 1 tsp per gallon but you'll want to double check me on that one. :)

I think it's actually 3 teaspoons at the most. That will help but not actually cure it. I think you're supposed to make the Betta eat medicated foods. You need a product called Jungle Anti Parasite Fizz Tabs. I think that's what it's called. You follow the instructions and put whatever your fish eats in it. There's a high chance that they won't eat it so after you dipped in the food, take it out and cover it in garlic juice. This is supposed to enhance the taste and smell. Try this if your fish refuses to eat. Sorry he has this. :/

Yeah I'm unsure what it is. :( It's my new baby rescue, his water was so rancid and full of food it was going into his /gills/. I added some epsom salt and if I see no improvements in a few days ( just got him yesterday! ), I'll definitely get some medicated food.

That's terrible! Even if it is a baby, it's great you rescued him/her. Yes, it is internal parasites. Actually the Epsom Salt won't do much. The medicated food is the way for him to be cured. Hope your pet store has it. >.<

My female CT does, and is a FAT round female. Drat. Double Drat. I had better get busy then. I assume I have to feed ALL of the females in the tank the medicated stuff at this point?

No. Just the suspect. Are you sure it's stringy? Your female might've released eggs and ate them.
