I know that one of the signs of Velvet is a copper color on the betta.
At one point (around February when I had the ick scare), I read about velvet and noticed that Buddha had that copper color on him! It was only on one gill, but it was copper alright. I freaked out, because I knew that the copper had been on him since I got him.
Well, it's been 4 months, and the little guy still has a patch of copper on his gill.
There's nothing wrong with a little patch of copper, correct? It has never grown bigger or smaller, it's just...been there. o.O
