I woke up this morning and found this strange thing on my Betta fish. Does anyone know what this is? I read on a different forum that it can just be removed by taking tweezers and pulling it off but that sounds... odd...? Is that the right thing to do?
The reason I found it as quickly as I did was because I have been monitoring him because he seems strange to me. He's had the swim bladder thing twice so I'm trying to not feed him as much (he doesn't have it now). And he looks bloated but I can't remember if that's how he always looked... (I've only had him for a few weeks). I also thought, maybe he had Dropsy or something but his scales aren't raised... At least I don't think they are, except the area around where he's bloated, but only slightly. Am I supposed to touch it to see if they are raised? Or should raised scales be more apparent than that? This is also the first time I've seen him make a bubble nest because last night, I turned off his filter for the first time overnight/extended period.
If anyone can shed some light on this, thanks!
