A continuation of this thread
I gave up on treatment of supposed parasites after NOTHING was working (salt treatments did nothing, and then I tried some medication). Two days ago, my fish started pineconing and was extremely lethargic, so I figured it was the end.
As a last resort, I tried some "dropsy cure" medication. And surprisingly, it worked o_0 Now my fish is back to his regular behavior, but he STILL has parasites or whatever they are. [He's tail-biting now too, but I figure that's either because he's stressed from the medication, or he finally realized there's a betta in the tank next to him]
His stomach is still huge, white, and semi-transparent. The medication I tried earlier for it is literally the ONLY anti-parasite medication I can find ANYWHERE (Tetra ParasiteGuard). I've seen Maradel, Maracyn, etc. but I'd like to know if those will work before I spend $15+ on them x_X
Or maybe there's something online I could order? Or should I just give up again, because I feel bad giving him all these treatmetns (and I'm sure its not good for him)
