And you can fast her and use the Epson salt treatment at the same time. I write everything down on my fish calender so I have notes about when what started and how/when I started treatment. Good luck!

Oh yay! I'm so happy you finally did the right thing for him!

Okay, epsom salt (as long as it's unscented and no other additives) you can use 3 teaspoons per gallon. Make sure you dissolve the salt first in another container (a small cup) with tank water. mix it around and then you can pour into the tank. The Pleco won't like it though so if you have another small container for her, that would be best.

Note: NOT with the Male, keep him away from your females or your going to get more females like this and it could eventually hurt them. You don't want your fishy friends hurt!

Good that you did the right thing. I think that you may be mistaking bettas as livebearers. Because you had the male betta in with the females if I am correct. Also you thought that bettas give birth to either live young, or fertilized eggs.

Yeah, BettaNubRandyLove, we had already gone through that on a different thread. She knows they are Betta's and she has also already been warned about putting males and females together, but now it's finally taking to effect.

You should also remove the snail from the tank. He won't be able to tolerate the salt.
