Absolutely! The people here on this forum have helped me quite a few times with problems with my Bettas and I know I would have lost them if it weren't for the help. They have taught me a lot and I love helping out anyone I can with what I do know. :)

Oh I know, I'm so thankful for all of the wise people here!

Here he is in his qt tank. He's such a trooper... never stresses over anything. It took less that 1 minute to figure out what happened, and he was at the glass looking at me!

Do I feed him his normal amount of pellets? I don't have any live or frozen food.

Yes, you can feed him the same amount of pellets. If you have any frozen glass worms or brine shrimp that would be best as frozen or live foods are much more nutritious and can help any fish who is ill recover faster. But if you don't then that's totally fine. :)

Update: A lot has changed... sometime last night i noticed that the white lump was much smaller... Then this morning I turn his light on and see this brown thing hanging from him like worm! So... what is this? I'm so sorry about the quality of my pictures lol.

Keep up with the AQS treatment, it looks like it's a parasite. The AQS should kill it off.

I'm glad the lump looks smaller btw. :)

Yes he was in with 2 other males. They look and act fine as far as I can tell. If anything, they might be thin, but I'm not a good judge of that. They swim around all day anyways. Will they likely get worms too? I did see a good brown curly poop from one of them today.

Sawyer definitely has another one coming out of him. :( But he acts fine as well. At least it hasn't affected him in that way.

There's a chance they may, so keep an eye on them.

Does the one poop you found in with your other boys look like the classic 'dog poop' image? lol.. I've had acouple of my boys do something that looked like that, which i think is normal.

Here's a link to another site with a thread about that:
http://www.ultimatebettas.com/index.php?showtopic=25272

As for acouple more showing up, they may be popping out because the salt is bothering them. If they are still there after his treatment then you can get him some Maracide and treat him with that. It's liquid and is for any external parasites and is awesome.

Sawyer will be able to go back in the tank with the other 2 right? As far as I know, there's only been 2. I'll have to look tonight at how the wound is.

Here's what the middle fish's poop looked like. Same color as the food lol.
