Internal like parasites? A med like General Cure, praziquantel, or metronidazole is best for parasites.

Yea I have to go pick up some metronidazole soon and put it in his food. Hopefully they'll have it, Metro+ and Seachem are the only two brands I know of that sell it pure. I'll keep praziquantel in mind too.. I had been looking at jungle labs medicated food for my cory but bettababy said there's an ingredient in there that betta don't handle very well earlier.

Speaking of the Cory, I still can't decide if something's stunted him or he's just naturally 1/3 the size of the bigger ones. I was told not to bother treating him in the end.

In my personal experience, most bettas won't eat the Jungle Labs pellets even if they saturated in garlic. I've tried several times. You're much better off soaking his food in your own metro/garlic mix. The Jungle Labs pellets are mostly wheat germ. Fish in general, not just bettas, don't handle the wheat germ.

Is the cory acting all right aside from being stunted? Poor cory. At least cories are peaceful and he won't get picked on, like he would if he was a stunted guppy or something.

They seriously sent the girl that sits with them to come and ask me questions. I just looked at them and said "I don't have cooties, you can ask me questions." and they still didn't say anything to me, and just like, giggled.

Intimidation.
