Thanks Vikki!

So some details on this parasite issue....

1. Cinder is swimming very actively-- a little too actively. He's staying to the far wall and swimming back and forth, up and down with extreme bursts of speed.

2. The appendages are the exact same color as Cinder, which is probably why I didn't see them at the store. They look long and stringy.

3. If I didn't know any better, I would've called them just extra growths on his anal fin... as if it's growing out and layering itself.

4. The appendages/parasites are on only one side, the left side.

Hope this helps someone to help me help Cinder!! :o

I say your best bet would be that next time you go out, to get some parasite meds and see how they work.

He's so young, though! Would meds be okay for him at such a young age? :(

Great story! I'm glad you finally got another betta :) Sorry about your ankle. I've been on crutches for a month before so I feel your pain, it's so annoying!

As for the parasites, maybe a picture? I've found Quick cure to work well with ick, and it says it can be used with other external parasites as well, however I don't know what your fish has so I can't recommend it. I also have Clout on hand although I've never had to use it.
