Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Well water is not good for fish...

Not parasites. I really don't know... Does she have any sores or anything that could be an illness on her body or fins?
No sores but it kinda looks like she has a small cut on her belly.

Are there any sharp decorations in her tank she could have cut herself on? Is she looking any better?

she might just be stressed out a little bit... idk maybe try to keep her alone (like not next to your other fish tanks) and keep it kinda dark...

I have well water...maybe that's why I've had so many problems. Why is well water bad for fish? I use water conditioner. Sorry for asking on your thread Alienbetta, I'm just curious. I hope your girl gets better soon! It looks like she is stressed out, but she could just be getting used to her surroundings.

I have well water and my fish are just fine. (Except for the recent deaths, but I don't think they had anything to do with that at all)

When I didn't know much about bettas I never used water conditioner and my fish were happy and healthy. I've tested my tap water and it has zero chlorine or anything else gross in it... but I now use water conditioner just to be safe.

Skolly just looks very stressed to me. Some girls are just like that. She's probably stressed from the water change you did. Put a dark cloth over her tank and keep her warm.
