When did you start noticing the symptoms? 1-2 days ago
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how?Weekly water change, added 1 tps. of AQ salt
Does your fish have any history of being ill? NO
How old is your fish (approximately)?---I don't know, got him from Petsmart(he has always been smaller than most bettas) around a little over a year ago.

The dot is very small, not as small as ich, but is white, and on the back side of the fin looks stringy and fuzzy, i thought it was fungus, but it is a VERY SMALL amount.

See if you can see it in these pictures:http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=106348

Enjoy the pictures too, BTW


Ps, i will be gone for 4 days, you think he will be ok? He is acting EXACTLY the same as he always has, great appetite and super active.

If there aren't any other dots and Honeycomb is acting normally, I think he's going to be fine. To me, it looks like Ich. But in your other photos, I don't see the dots... I hope he's not sick, he's a good Veiltail! :)

Thanks! Yep, i don't know if it is ich or not, because that is the ONLY hole on him, and it is WAY bigger than a grain of salt. But, i think he will be ok with some clean water :)

Thanks for your help :)
