I quickly dissolved it by stirring it like crazy. Then saw no more granules. When I poured it into the tank she was already out of it in a tupperware. Then I gently added some of that mixed tank water to the tupperware.

She is moving her fins but not really swimming. Also I see her gills moving rapidly. Seems a little better then before. I will add a little warmer water soon. Getting on the cooler side.

ok, good, sounds like she will be ok.. I hope, just let her rest now, and keep and eye on her, and see if she calms down..but wait til later to put her back in the tank, so she can get air easier.:) she could be slightly stressed with all that has been going on..so rest for now is what she needs..hugs, and keepme updated:)

Hi!I did read your thread, but was rushing to class this morning, so I did not have time to reply. You betta, is a mini adult now *yay!*.

I wanted to ask you the possibilities of cross contamination between your tanks. I doubt if infected symptoms will show up so soon, but it could be a future precaution.

How much salt did you use for her? I only had a baby betta with ich (even tinier than yours!) and I treated her with the full strength 3tsp/g doseage. go slowly. if you can.... find some unflavored plain roobois tea(twinnings usually works). it may not have the tannins, but it will definitely soothe her a bit. it worked fairly well for my first bettas. soak the tea in a bit of warm water to help it begin steeping. put two drops of water conditioner on it, and place it in her tank. you can let it steep as long as you want. before the next water change.
Wishing the best for your little one, it must be stressful having two sick fish
I'm battling a case of velvet right now...on top of school, it's quite a bit of stress.

Don't be sad... most likely it was an underlying problem from her treatment at the LFS.....

may she swim happily under the rainbow bridge....
