Thank you Sena :) Also i want to add something. Don't share anything between your second betta and Sniper . In case Sniper has infection and can contaminate your other fish.

If you only have one of something you "need" to use for the other fish, rinse extremely well with hot water and vinegar mix (equal amounts) then rinse with water a few times after

Things aren't looking so good for my poor Sniper... :( I qt him in the cup he came in and added a little aq salt. Not much improvement. I tried soaking a pellet in garlic, but that didn't do any good - he still wouldn't eat. Just now I found him lying flat on his side just below the surface of the water. I got him to rest upright, but he is at a slant like this --> "/" when he is upright. I think I'm losing him! :(

So, he is fairly new, right? He probably came sick. How much salt did you add, and did you dissolve it first? salt that is directly added will burn and 99% chance will kill the fish.

DISSOLVE THE SALT FIRST!!! I never knew I had to do that!!! My poor baby!!! There is no mention of dissolving it first on the carton!! No, he is not new. I got him a while ago. :'(

take him out, and into some water from the other betta's tank. Immediately. Stop all treatments, for now, and keep an eye on him. Float him in a warm tank.
