Does he have any other symptoms? Are you sure it's fungus and not his normal coloring? By two weeks I would expect other symptoms to show up if it were fungus.

ok i plan to get him a heater this week although he has one but his water temperatur varies from 22 to 27 because i live in a cold climate on average its around 24 most of the time.. i feed him betta bites made by HBH..

In reply to Doctorwholuver..at first the white marking you can see was very tiny like a dot and ive had him for just over 2 weeks now and i just noticed its gotten bigger as you can see in picture so that worried me... i plan to take hs water to the fish store this week to get its levels tested and see what they have to say.. Other then that he's always happy whenever he see's me and is very active.. at night he goes to sleep under the tree i got him around 11pm and stays there for a while...its so cute lol

I had many to choose from (betta's) but i chose this one because he was different not only in colour but personality and was much smaller then all the others.. i wish i could have saved them all!!! he's the most placid fishy i've ever came across he loves it when i give him attention ..since ive gotten him he's gained a sky blue colour and has red streaks through his fins ..i love love love him!! He's my first fishy tooo
