you have to do 100% water changes if your tank is not cycled, and if your tank is under 5 gallons.

There are certainly people on this forum who could help you, but they don't seem to be on at the moment!! Let me reiterate what everybody else is saying--send a "private message" to Oldfishlady. I would also do searches on "parasite" and see if you come up with something that sounds/looks like this. If one of the resident experts hasn't responded by tomorrow morning, I would go to the best LFS and ask for advice. Read enough of the "parasite" posts here that you can get some idea of whether the person is giving good advise. Some of the medications are not recommended for Bettas.

I hope one of the experts responds soon!

I've been here for months. I knew who to go to. :) But thanks anyways. The slim went away completely with a single water change. No problems since. I think it may have just been dust or something.
She's healthy and active as usual.
Thanks anyways.

That's awesome, but really strange... Those look like parasites. Keep an eye out for a recurrence in a few days/weeks. If you due, let us know asap.
