I was just feeding my Betta fish last night, and I noticed looking at his tail that he has minute black spots all over it and his body etc. I'm not sure if this is a disease or what, as I can't remember if I have recalled them before. He is very very active, eats normally etc, and I have a filter, heater etc and everything is right, I feed him daily and he doesn't share a tank with anything else.
