    My betta is still living although very bloated. The maracyn two and aquarium salt do not help with the swelling. He floats at the top and and sometimes eats. Is there anything else for the bloating?

    Ah thanks..

    Just trying to work out what to do with these Endlers, 2 are grey/black , the other is yellow,

    No idea how old, the lady didn't really have a clue, (she got 2 male endlers and 6 females.

    And got over run with them, So she threw some in with the shrimp, we tried separating them but they kept jumping back in the bag, so she gave in

    Awesome, the betta food should not be a problem for the Endlers
    Lucky Endler fry too, my Bettas gobble up guppy fry pretty fast in my Bettas have never been a problem for adult guppies...I have lots of both species all in the same tanks and only guppy newborn to 1 week old fry are in a week or so old they are too big and fast for the Bettas to natural population control...laffs.....
    My RCS adults have been safe with the Bettas but I am sure they do get some of the shrimpletts....except in one of my experimental 20g spawning shrimp don't last long with 5 females and 1 male even with all the plants, but in the 75g with all the Bettas and guppies the shrimp tank size has made a difference in my case and survival of Shrimp.....

    Hi OFL.

    Solar maimed 3 shrimps, the rest have know been moved into the community tank down stairs.

    How-ever He is still with 3 Endler Fry (they came free with the shrimps)...

    Which I wasnt expecting to last a night with him, almost a week later and their still there, and he still isnt bothering them..

    No idea how old they are, I'm feeding them really really small pieces of flakes, And Daphnia .

    But they keep stealing Solar's Betta flakes and pellets.. will it hurt them?

    They hide in the plants if Solar goes near, and Very very quietly zip to the other side of the tank out of they way, (they are way too fast for him)..

    Through his gills, but floating on the back is not a good sign sadly.....sometimes the injury can be worse than you think, you may want to lower the water level some and put the fish in a dark quiet place and hope for the best....but honestly it doesn't sound good.....

    Clean water and water changes for now is what I would do, depending on how bad the injury he may or may not recover
