Glancing Betta

20g, amm-0, nitrite-0, nitrate-5ppm, lots of fast growing plants, Mopani driftwood, heated to 78f, hob, play sand substrate, 40-50% water changes weekly. Mystery, Nerite and Rabbit snails.
I added a Betta 3-4 weeks ago and he started glancing. I removed the snails to a 10g quarantine tank and treated the Betta with API General Cure for two weeks. He stopped glancing and passed what looked like a tape worm. After the 2 week treatment I put the snails back in the Bettas tank. Next day he's glancing again. What do you think the problem is?

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.

It's easy enough to do and will rule that out as a possibility.
