    My betta has been showing long, white, stringy poops and increased lethargy. I dosed her tank with API General Cure a few days ago, but I'm not seeing much of an improvement.

    I was wondering if it's safe/recommended to try another dose of General Cure so soon after the first one?

    The box recommends multiple treatments at least three treatments I believe.

    25% watcher change, meds wait 48 hours and that’s one treatment done. Repeat.

    Sorry I should have clarified-- I did follow the box instructions with the 2 doses, 48 hours, water change, etc.

    I'm wondering if I should repeat it again, or if there's something else I should try. Thank you!

    It takes more than a few treatments to get results. Some fish are so far with the disease that you have to do multiple treatments.

    Are you treating in a QT tank or the main tank? If the fish is eating that’s a good sign. As long it’s not spitting it out.

    Okay- I will give her another dose, thank you!

    I'm treating in the main tank. She's still a good eater. She's been spitting it out for the past couple days, but only because I've been soaking the food in garlic, and she does eventually eat it.
