Sorry about patchy....

The thing I would be suspicious of is that WHITE rock.

Isn't that a piece of coral?
  • Can't tell if it's real or fake, but it could be leeching marine contaminants into your tank.
Regardless, that white rock thing looks a bit sharp/rough around the edges. I wouldn't leave it in a betta occupied tank.

Not sure how you would check if there's marine salt in your tank, but you could give the rock a taste test once you remove it.

You can rinse it off, and taste it if it's the fish water you are worried of!!

I find fake coral is not as porous as real coral.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
