I’ve read it is recommended to take the carbon out while using medication because the carbon is porous and would just suck the meds in. But I would not turn of the filter, I think it could kill your bacterial colony.
Thank you so much for the compliment! She's the first fish I've ever owned so I'm a very proud (and very attached) betta mom. I also need all the help I can get lol.I would try feeding her peas first and only after doing that for a few days would I even consider medicating. No need to put her through treatment if it isn't totally necessary.
BTW, She is beautiful !!!!
I would only feed her peas for a couple of days and then feed her a tiny bit of her normal food for a couple of days and see how she is doing.Thank you so much for the compliment!

I gave her a pea yesterday and am doing daily 30% water changes. Today her poop is normal colored (sorry if that's TMI) but she is still bloated. I think I'll keep up with the peas and water changes for now, then medicate if necessary.
Thanks again for all the help, everyone!
You are very welcomeThat's great advice, thank you!
At first I was worried because she was swimming very erratically, but I think that's just her way of begging for food. I set up a camera to watch her from the other room. Turns out she's acting totally normal unless I'm right there.
