Fast for a day or two, and if it doesn't work... you can start by adding 1tsp of epsom salt per gallon of treated water and slowly switch her over to it. If that doesn't work after 5 days, I would up her dose to 2-3 tsp per gallon. But seeing as she was fine, and is now floating (and unable to leave the top of the water) fasting or 1 tsp of epsom salt should work for her :)
LOL !! Cute girl you have there ^_^ Hope she'll have a speedy recovery.. Anyway same thing happend to me a while ago. I went to a petshop and told myself not to buy any more bettas and just get water conditioners. I have 6 CTs 3male 3female, and 2 VT's 1male and 1female. But when i went outside i got my handsome Delta Plakat, and now i'm looking for a Female Delta Plakat hehehe. He's housed in my 1/2G tank for now and i ordered a 2.5G aquarium for his new home. I hope i can control myself next time cause i'm running out of place for my aquariums LOL! Here's his pic
Gosh, what a spunky little girl. Definitely got a swim bladder problem. She floats on her side most of the time, but has plenty of energy to chase my finger across the tank. I hope she gets better soon, I'm really worried. I don't think I over-fed her, I only gave her a single pellet after I got her home. Maybe she was overfed at the store. Would I be able to tell if she were egg bound?
Happy to say that the little miss is back to normal, and has pried her butt off the surface. She's swimming normally, thank goodness. I never did see any fish poo, so I guess she WAS all bloated with eggs. Either way, whew. Glad that's over.
Uh, may have spoken too soon. She's floating and bloated again. I didn't even feed her yet. I'm so confused about what is going on with this fish. She seems really interested in the surface, and she's blowing bubbles and then biting them. Maybe I should go post in the diseases subforum.
