  1. Hi there. Sadly, we put her down a couple weeks ago:(. Her stomach never went down and even looked like it was getting bigger. She began eating the Daphnia regularly but I saw no effect on her. Assuming she wasnt going to survive I felt it was best to let her go so she wasnt so uncomfortable. I really appreciate all your help. You did more then the Petstores offered!
  2. Thank you very much for all your help. How often do I add the Epsom salt?
  3. Hi again. I have only seen my fish eat the Daphnia one time. I've tried feeding it to her several times but she doesnt come up to the top to grab food anymore like she use too. I put her in a small bowl since I've tried Daphnia and it doesnt look like shes pooped at all either. I feel like theres nothing left to do unless I take her to an exotic vet.
  4. Thank u so much!!! I will update any changes. You've been more help than the pet stores and I really appreciate it.
  5. Ok, Will do. Do you have an estimated time frame of with both of these efforts that her stomach should decrease in size? And how often do I use Epsom salt?
  6. No they aren't from what I can tell. I was going to try daphnia too bc her stomach has not gone down at all. It's been 2 weeks now.
  7. Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 20 Ph 7.8 Alkalinity 120 Hardness 100 Chlorine and chloramine 0

  10. Hi. I know this is a common topic for betta but I can not figure out if she is egg bound or bloated. It's been almost two weeks and her tummy has not gone down. She only had 2 peas to eat within that time. Otherwise she has not eaten anything. Shes been hanging around the bottom of the tank for weeks as well. There is a cat in the house who has been preying on her tank off and on and that is when she started hiding more. People from petco are telling me she may be egg bound or she may be constipated so I still dont know. What is the time frame for them to absorb their eggs if she is egg bound? Hi please help me.
