    I can't say anything from the picture. I am thinking if it can be his slime coat. Is there any behavior changes at all? Darting, scratching on objects?(gravel, heater , walls). How much water you changing in his 5 gall ? I think you told me you do 50% weekly with gravel vacuuming right? Any symptoms on the body?

    lol not sure i think he might will get used to you soon. I have one betta who does it all the time, it kind of cute. My other males do it sometimes too for a second and then stop. Is it possible that he might see his own reflection? Or you just come unexpected and he does it...Not sure but i do have male like that too.

    oh sorry i think your wrote me that. Well if it one gall do 3tsp/gall not 1 tsp though. Can you tell me if he had those symptoms white spots anywhere on his body, looks like he sprinkled with salt? Darting, rubbing his body on objects? Also what color is his poo? I can see something white on his body. Does he has fuzzy white cottony patches on his body? How long? Can you remind to me how long he is sick? I think i read somewhere that he had slime coat when you bought her? How long you have her?

    wait i got confused how big is the tank she is in now? If you add a quarter and then add 1/2 tsp it only-1tsp / gall. I would really recommend 3 tsp/gall.

    Hey i didn't see your message. I would use 3tsp/gall. I see Sakura also recommending the same. Don't worry you can go ahead and dissolve rest of the salt and add to the tank. You can do it gradually. Do 2tsp/gall and then in 6 hrs add another dose -1tsp/gall. So you end up with total of 3tsp/gall. Then you can just continue daily water changes with 3tsp/gall.

    So if your tank is 5 gall you will need to add 15tsp/gall of the aq salt.
