Edit- Oops.. I mean recovery from parasites lol.
My betta, Leela, who I got yesterday, has parasites in her gills. She flashes a lot, and I could hear the bump as she tried to scratch her gills at the bottom of the aquarium.
She is living in a temporary 1 gal. I did a complete water change, and added a teaspoon of aquarium salt. She is feeling much better- she is more active (even though she does flash), has gained some more color on her tail, and has even un-clamped her fins a few times for me, displaying some pretty pastel on her tail. Tonight, and until she gets better (with some breaks, of course) I'm going to feed her food soaked in garlic juice, and little pieces of chopped up garlic. I'm also going to do the water changes until she gets better, too, with a few breaks from the salt.
I'm just wondering, are there any medications out there that would speed up her recovery? There has to be SOMETHING....
