    I like to use the Epsom salt 1tsp/gal 10 day treatment along with the daily 100% water changes and if it is related to an injury I will use the Epsom salt until the swelling goes down and switch to aquarium salt to complete the 10 day treatment.
    Anything with swelling I use Epsom salt 1tsp/gal up to 3tsp/gal-injuries I like to use aquarium salt 1tsp/gal up to 3tsp/gal (in salt tolerant fish) both I do 100% daily water changes-treatment is best done in small QT
    Depending on how bad or why--I add oak leaf to the water-IAL will work too

    Hi oldfishlady. Just popped by to give you an update on the male /female tank. There doing great. The male does not bother them at all. They even swim side by side. The females have estalblished a alpha its my pk girl but the male does take more interest in my small vt girl. I thhink the pk is a little jelous.

    I am not sure what the food is, however, most tropical fish food is generally safe and fine to feed to most fish including Bettas.

    With mine I didn't have fighting or fighting for the male to spawn, but mine also are siblings and that make a difference

    Is it normal for there to be a bit of fighting at first? One of the females has stress stripes the other one does not. Im guessing the with stripes is not the alpha and the female with out stripes is alpha? If they do spawn will the alpha fight for the male??

    Be careful adding too many females with him, personally I would stick to 2 in a 10g..at least for awhile......you can always add them later.....
