Last Thursday I received my new bettas and noticed one of the females had a lump on her side, I assumed this was her swim bladder as I know some can be more noticeable than others but soon after I noticed she was pooping white, again I put it down to the colour food that the breeder fed her but for the next few days I kept an eye on her.
The four females I had before my new additions were a bit on the bloated side so I decided to fast the whole tank, the fast started on friday and on sunday I fed them an algae wafer as I heard this can help with constipation. Monday and Today I started to feed the tank Tetra Betta flakes as I know this makes the poop pink which would then give me a betta idea on my females state but today she was still pooping white. Is this internal parasites? she seems fine in herself and is eating, what else could it be? and are internal parasites contacious? (sorry for my bad spelling
