Isabelle Posted November 17, 2021 Share Posted November 17, 2021 (edited) Hello! My betta has recently been acting a bit strange--she's been lethargic, breathing heavy, and rubbing her gills against decorations in the tank. This morning I noticed this red, worm-like entity sticking out from under her gills and am now concerned that it is a potential parasite. Has anyone seen this before? Some background: I've had her for about 3 weeks and she lives in a planted tank with a bulldog pleco I added about 3 days ago (he seems to be doing ok) I feed her Omega One betta pellets and occasional frozen blood worms The tank is kept between 79°F and 80°F There is an airstone for added oxygen Water parameters: Ammonia: 0 ppm Nitrite: 0 ppm Nitrate: 0 ppm KH: 0 ppm GH: 30 ppm pH: 6.5 Thank you!
