Parasites
   Unseen Parasites
Symptoms : Your betta acts lethargic (lazy), loses color, sometimes loses appetite. He/she begins to act sluggish, clamped fins and is just not quite right. You can find no other signs of disease but you know something is wrong.
Info : These can be introduced by live foods most commonly, but there are many ways these unseen terrors get to our bettas. I have found that these are the most common ailment and are treated the wrong way in most cases.
Treatments : I suggest using Coppersafe in the bettas container. It should clear it right up if it is in fact parasites.
