Okay, do you remember what that other med at the store was by chance?

Also if you live near a wal-mart, they have Jungle products. I particularly like Quick Cure which is only 1 drop per gallon; easy easy, and then Ick Clear is good too. But I think getting Quick Cure might be your best bet and the easiest on both you and your boy

Yes we have Wal Mart will get the Jungle one today- should I do full tank changes every day still or change that? Honestly never thought to look at WalMArt for fish care products :)

Yeah still change once a day to get rid of the free-floating particles otherwise they can infect him once more.

Yeah, Wal-mart occasionally has some good stuff haha

Oh and no there is not poop in his tank that I can see. There was some when we changed it sort of a white string curl?

hm okay, that could be multiple things. It's probably just from the diet change or he's expelling internal parasites, either way it's good that they are out. Keep an eye on it for the next few day's, if you continue to see those after about 3 more day's then we may have to treat him for internal parasites as well lol, but that's fairly simple

They did not have Jungle Quick Cure at Walmart here, only AP Quick Cure. Should I use those drops or the other medicine I bought?

Oh that's what it is, sorry, I tend to get brands mixed up sometimes. Wal-mart tends to carry more Jungle stuff so I assumed ^_^'

I'd use the Quick Cure drops though, I'm tentative with the coppersafe just because I haven't done much research or use with it so I don't want to hurt your Betta or anything. I'm sure it'd be totally fine but I'm being a bit of a worry wort right now with everything lol but those drops will work great

No problem I just appreciate the help. Did the water change and added the Quick Cure and dechlorinator. He CAN swim to the bottom but it is like he doesnt want to and he just lays mainly on his leaf and just looks more awkward swimming if that makes any sense. Did eat his pellets for supper though. Can it be due to stress?

Yeah it's probably just stress we'll check on him in the morning to see if he's doing any better. Of course, meds don't usually work right away so it will be a while before you see any results from him. So just keep that in mind is all
