String of slime hanging from Betta
Hi, I just arrived to ask this specific question. My betta has a stringy slime about 2 inches long hanging off his body in front of his ventral fin. I treated him last week for 5 days with maracyn. The dosage said one tablet/10 gallon tank for 5 days. He lives in a betta tank so I gave him a quarter tablet. He perked up and is eating but the slime reappeared today just a bad as originally. PS I am a vet but we didn't study fish.

Is he bloated at all? When was the last time he ate and what do you feed him? Look at him from above, does he have raised scales? And I strongly urge you to test your water with a liquid test kit, API makes one of the best ones, and to consider a larger tank and a heater. No doubt the cold water is contributing to vulnerability to disease.
This is the song that never ends...
