My concern was someone's Betta having to suffer because a person "new" to aquarium life is embarrassed to ask a question--or doesn't know what question to ask in the first place. Thanks to those who took me seriously, I now have very useful information to refer to--and maybe it will help someone else, too. Thanks!

I think your question is very legitimate . If the poop isn't normal then it could be a sign of illness. I'm so sorry your fish died.

Question How do internal parasites present in Bettas?

Can you tell me what the parasites looked like or any symptoms.. something's wrong with my poor Luda and I'm not sure but I'm about out of options.

The most common sign of internal parasites is white, stringy poop.

Sorry to ask a question in a thread... but it is on topic.

Neon's aren't NEARLY as big as Adastra said.

There's usually a dozen little Betta poops about the size of a medium-large grain of sand. VERY tiny. And I do water changes once a week... what the heck is wrong?

Hey Drama,

What's the healthiest way to treat and prevent intestinal parasites? :)

Maracide and Clout are the only things I know of that treat parasites. Jungle makes an anti parasite food. It might work if you can get your fish to eat it. Also, garlic is good for treating parasites, from what I've read.
