Weird poop....

My friends has been saying that her bettas poop has been quite odd. She says that it's half red and half blue, not blended in between the two colours. She also says that he has been quite lathargic and sleeping alot more.
He lives in a .5 gallon tank, which is a problem that's going to be fixed soon, and it usually stays around 76-77 because the room is warm. She does 100% water changes usually every day, but sometimes every other.
I'm wondering if I should tell her to treat for parasites, or if it could be something else.

Don't treat for anything unless you know for sure what the problem is.

Wow red and blue poop? lol does she use water conditioner when she does water changes? Also, is she feeding him food made just for bettas? Does he look bloated or swollen in the belly area?

Lol I wish I could see my betta poop. He gets bloated all the time and I don't like to feed him unless I know he pooped so I don't get him constipated. And I never see it. He hides it very well I suppose... haha

LOL I was going to ask... if I was the only one that hasn't seen my betta poop.

The last time I saw his poop was when he was in the plastic container he came in waiting for my tank to cycle.

Now I have a ghost shrimp to find his poop, but I have yet to see him poop.
