    I have a female betta who seems to have internal parasites. The first few days I had her (I've had her for almost a week) her poop was half normal-looking and half white, or sometimes more white, and a bit gooey.

His belly's coloring has become yellow, he's lethargic, clamping a bit, and I think I see white spots IN his poop (he had diarrhea on Tuesday). He's still interested in food, so I'm hoping he can hang on until tomorrow night, when I...
