New betta- SBD

So, I finally gave into my need to get another betta (I wanted a female, even though they had a BEAUTIFUL orange male VT and a BEAUTIFUL torquose/green crown tail)
and after looking through the females, a couple tiny white ones, a few red and whites, I found this BEAUTIFUL solid green, so I was picking her up to buy when I saw the floating male.... a pretty red crowntail, he had been dead a water and an AWEFUL smell was coming from his container, and worse, underneath his conainer was a pretty white female with orange fins.... ho obviously has SBD, of course, she tugged at my heart and now Im sitting a home trying to figure out how to cure SBD (have have the epsom salt, but cant remember the mixture)

Any help?

Heres the best pic I can get of the pretty girl right now:

Premixed treatment water for buoyancy problems:

Use a 1gal jug of dechlorinated water-Add Epsom salt 2tsp/gal and tannins-either IAL or oak leaf and use this water for 100% daily water changes for 10-14 days
Also, cover the top of the Qt with plastic veggie wrap to retain heat and humidity for the labyrinth organ..

Pretty little girl you found...good luck.....

I've got the tannins/epsum water in with her origianal water... what a wildfire this girl is, she's already livened up a lot already and shes looking for food (soaking more pellets in the garlic water so she's going to have to wait)

I already had tannins water out so I just mixed some epsum salt in with it, the water was for Hercules so its already conditioned (making new stuff for Herc, his water has aleady been changed today so it wil be ready by morning)

Still need a name for this little lady!
