what else can i do?

Rathian my smallest female is swimming a bit funny like she keeps floating up on her side but shes active and is a pig. im giving her a salt bath now with a towel over the bowl so she can have darkness and relax. is it possibly SBD? is there anything else i should do?

shes in a 10g with 4 other girls the temp is set at 78* and the test strip says everything is within normal levels (well shes in the hospital bowl now)

If shes having a hard time swimming up to breathe lower the water level.

well in the hospital bowl she was fine but once i put her back in the tank she started it again :( i seperated her to a 1g with a lower water level and no filter so there is no current for her to have to get all pushed around by ill keep her in there untill i see that she is no longer struggling to swim. the temp was 78* in the 1g but im slwoly bringing it up to 82*, is this a good temp? shes also in a location thats a bit darker than where the rest of the tanks are so she can relax...although Mr.F is gawking at her though his new silk plant (can u say creeper? LOL)

My betta used to float on his side, I fasted him for a day and then he was fine, but hes still sickly.
Yeah that temp should be fine, as long as it doesnt get too warm. She just needs to be comfy and rest poor little thing.
LMAO I laughed at loud at the creeper thing.

:D i laughed when i looked over and hes peekin out behind his plant flaring LOL my laugh scared my fiancee cuz it was real quiet in the house XD
shes also the lowest in rank so the other girls push her around when she gets in the way so i think being separated will help her relax and rest. im going to fast her for sunday and start her on some crushed pellets on monday morning to see if it helps balance things out :)
