I went to take care of it this morning and it’s gone? Should I still treat the tank? I can’t find the worm anywhere.

Her egg spot is much smaller and in front of the long white thing. It wasn’t there this morning. Is it poop/ is she constipated? Should I give her a pea? Thanks!
Also, the water isn’t dirty, it’s water marks on the outside of my tank from me being clumsy.
Looks like poop to me. Just watch her. Is she eating etc?

You can. She may not eat it. Bettas are carnivores. What do you normally feed her? She actually looks very healthy and happy.

Pellets, flakes, freeze dried bloodworms daphnia mysis.
So she’s not constipated? I was worried she was and read that peas are good for helping that.

peas are for the vegitarian fish, like plecos/goldfish/mollies.

For carnivores/insectovoires you want to feed live/frozen daphnia or baby brine shrimp.
