    Kanamycin would be great if you can find it. If you can find a anti-parasite pellet food that contains Metronidazole (like Jungle's Anti-Parasite Pellets) then you can combine that with either Kanamycin or the Maracyn combo.

    Sadly, no. They don't have that good medication at Petland :(( Ill try to beg my mom over the weekend to go to another fish store where HOPEFULLY they'll have good medicines. Besides Maracyn I and II, are there any other medications I can look for?

    Do you have a thread started with the tank info and such? For now do 3tsp/gal Epsom and daily 100% water changes. Are you able to buy medications like Maracyn I and II?

    Thankfully, yes! Oh and It's okay! I that happens to me sometimes and I'm so freaked out about my messages and other things I usually check. He has the same problems but now he's swimming in circles looking in pain.

    Hi there,
    Does he look thin? Or bloated? Does it look like he is trying to "shake something off"? Can you see anything on him (parasites)?

    Youlovegnats told me to contact you about this------

    Okay... I just got a new marble betta fish on November 25th. Since last week he has been darting across, up ,down, all over his tank. There is NO fish with him in the tank. Once, I spied on him and he was darting and NO ONE WAS THERE AT ALL. Is this normal or does he have seizures? You see when a betta fish chokes it swims crazily trying to spit it out? Thats what he does BEFORE I feed him and AFTER i feed him....
