Alrighty, more issues with parasites. It's Hester this time so I need to find a way to get her bloating down very quickly.
What size is your tank? Split .5 gal long hospital tank
What temperature is your tank? Should be staying at around 76-78*
Does your tank have a filter? No
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No
Is your tank heated? No
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? Divided with another female for quarantine
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Topfin Betta Bits and Hikari Krill
How often do you feed your betta fish? Twice daily (fasting 1 day and as needed)
How often do you perform a water change? Twice daily
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 50% (Tank is too small for a cup so we can't change all of it at once)
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Aquasafe Water Conditioner
Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Very bloated, white poop
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Having trouble staying at the top if she has gone down, lethargic
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Last night
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? 2 tsp/gal epsom salt and general cure
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Other than back deformity, no
How old is your fish (approximately)? Should be over a year old, but we've only had her for a few months
The reason why this needs to get resolved very quickly is because her back already puts a lot of pressure on her stomach and her bloating has increased despite of the epsom salt and general cure.
The pic is from sunday night before the issue, her back is normally like that. I'm going to get a picture of her from the top right now, but I wanted this to get as much attention in the mean time. If needs be I can find a way to get Sabino out of the other half if any more extensive medication is needed.
