Just got home he was sitting behind the heater like he was this morning but then he started swimming around normally for a little and now he's back down under a plant again, I'm going to change the water now, should I still put in the parasite guard tablet? He's still looking bloated but still not as extreme as it was before

Today is also the 11th day of epsom salt, maybe he's becoming inactive because of using epsom salt for a long time, I think I'll not use epsom salt today and just use the parasite guard, oh and I saw what I think may be part of his poop floating in the water, it's brown and thin and kind of looks like a flattened, not sure if that's poop or maybe a flake that we feed the fish in 10 gallon might have fallen in

also he didn't try to eat the pellet, he barely even came up and saw it but he did eat a little bit of daphnia because it dispersed everywhere, what I'm worried is that maybe I used epsom salt for too long and his organs are shutting down or something or maybe the parasite guard is getting rid of the parasites but its like a struggle on the inside for him to get the parasites out

no it not epsom salt. Don't worry about epsom salt it really fine. Only aquarium salt can damage if you using it more then 13 days. Epsom salt you really can use for very long time. So don't stop it. I am sure and i was helping someone before.
About medications. The person i was helping was using the same med's and didn't have any problem so i kind of can't say that he is inactive because of that. But i don't like the fact that he is less active.
Usually if fish has internal parasites fish can get worse really fast. So i think may be this is the reason.
So i really think don't stop epsom. What is instructions on medications? Is it tablet or powder? How much of it should be per gallon? Do you put whole tablet? Usually they give instructions per 10 gall i think. Did your divided it?
I would really continue the treatment.

Also don't share anything between him and your other betta.

I haven't used the same things between him and my other betta since he got bloated, the parasite guard are tablets its 1 tablet for 10 gallons so I cut them into quarters, I added the epsom salt again hopefully he gets back to normal soon

sorry i am leaving right now , next time i will check the forum tomorrow morning. Hopefully he will eat tomorrow. Please give update. I really never read from anyone that fish got worse because of medications. So i kind of cross my fingers it will help. Since i personally know someone on this forum who did the same you doing right now. And don't worry about salt this one i know for 100% not going to hurt him, but helping.

Its ok and thanks for all the help, he's eating some daphnia, but he didn't really notice the pellet or anything or just ignored it
