So I've had my betta Sushi for about 6 months now, no problems with anything, other than some ripped fins when i first got him. Today during my waterchange, while he was in his cup, I noticed some stringy white poop. I emptied my tank, cleaned it out again, and removed the gravel, so i can see his poop tomorrow. So, I think he's got an internal Parasite.
He lives in an unheated one gallon tank (as it has been what I could afford, until I get more money), with an undergravel filter (which has an airstone).
I feed Sushi 3 HBH Betta Bites twice a day, and fast him on Tuesdays. He still eats like a little piggy, and begs for more, so I dont think his appetite has been affected.
I do a complete water every 3 days, cleaning gravel, tank, filter, airstone, the tubing, everything in the tank. And add API Tap Water Conditioner. And I'm gonna start changing his water daily (and remove the undergravel filter), so he's got nice clean water everyday.
I dont know the water parameters, I haven't gotten a water testing kit yet, I will be getting one as soon as i can.
My betta still looks exactly the same as when I got him, and he doesnt appear to be bloated. He's lethargic, but he pretty much always has (due to lack of heater). And I just noticed the stringy white poop today.
Someone, please answer soon, thanks. ~KLeighS
