Your water is soft and neutral, right? Maybe try some wild betta species if you can find some around.

Hmm. I might!
Why is Percy's water cloudy? I just put the little guy in there yesterday. He's my injured Betta, I moved him from a 1g hospital to a 3g. I'm keeping the water level a couple inches lower than I normally would. He's not having trouble swimming, though. I ran the filter prior to putting him in, but took it out so he wouldn't get injured by it.

Edit: It's the same water I always use, with the same conditioner. The decorations and large rocks are all things that have been rinsed and used in previous aquariums without it getting cloudy.

You will always be my best friend, .

Washed my hair with baking soda and water. VERY soft! Very volumized too :) Totally natural and no parabens or harsh cleansers. I'm a fan.
We're going out to a Korean restaurant.. Never ate it before. Please tell me it's delicious!

Okay so, before I go posting this in the emergencies section, I wanna get your guys input first.
You know I've been away for a few weeks, and this time when I came back from vacation, I noticed that Goblin has some goofy thing on his head. It's not a bump, but like, a white/off-colored spot? Doesn't look fuzzy, well not that I can tell anyway, he won't stop moving. I just did a 100% change before I left.
I'll try to get a pic of it. Just, worried? Plus my Mom was supposed to feed him and I don't think she did. He is voracious though. And I can notice now that he is severely hunchbacked. D:

Could be freshwater white spot disease aka Ich, it's very common. It must be treated with a propietary remedy before it forms or after the cyst bursts.

Def not ich. Doesn't look at all like he's peppered with salt. It's like, consuming the side of his face.
