He does, which is why my concern was "parasites" but if his poop has been normal, it's unlikely.

Epsom salt. It can be used alongside meds, and keeps the internal track going. pre-dissolve 1-3 teaspoons per gallon gradually adding over time.

i find the bloated yellow belly to be bacterial. Parasites tend to cause sunken belly.. sometimes can get secondary bacterial that cause this though.

Yah the yellowish white color has me worried. Do you think I should continue with another 5 days of the maracyns or switch to the jungle stuff?

Personally I would say stay with the same meds rather than dosing him with another kind... Callistra, what's your thoughts?

Here's a picture I got today while changing the water. It seems a bit darker, but that might be due to the bloodworm he probably ate (while I wasn't looking). Don't know if this helps anything.

That doesn't look like normal poop to me.. If you wanted to switch meds I'd switch to Kanaplex + Furan 2, otherwise I'd stick with what you have.

If/when I switch meds, should I have a few days without any medication to give his system a rest, or just start the new meds right away?

I personally like to give my Bettas a rest when they are under medication.
