Bloating Female Betta
Hey guys, well i'm starting to get back into betta keeping.. I recently got a nice white bodied, multicolored fin crowntail that i think is the most beautiful betta i've seen. The only thing i'm worried about is that she seems to have slight bloating. She's been like this since i got her in the store. Howcan i help her out a bit?

Help pleaaase someone? I've put her in her own separate tank and have been adding aquarium salt and doing 100% water changes. I'm not gonna put her in my community tank till i see that she is pooping regularly.

I would not add the salt as I have read that can make the bloat worse. Try to get her to eat a pea but just the soft inside not the shell part it will work as a mild laxative I have done this before and it worked you may have to go a day or so with out food before she will eat it. Then if you don't already go with out feed one day a week it help them clean out there system.
