This is a great forum for anyone keeping bettas, IMO. The people here may be able to help you with sicknesses and stuff, and this help is only educated guesses... But mostly all of our members are dedicated to the absolute best care we can provide. I've learned tonss in the couple months I have been a member here, and it's so relieving having somewhere to go where people understand. It's super easy to get attached to these fish... So be prepared :p
Hah. I owned a few when I was much younger. So I know how getting attached is.

I'm constantly on the lookout for a better house for him (got him as a christmas present, and I know the tank that was given to me is definitely too small for him.)

That other person mentioned Columnaris, so I grabbed another picture of him. To my eyes the stuff on his back is blue. Just his scale colorations. I can definitely keep my eyes open for any white starting up.

That looks way different than your other photos. It looked on some of those others like he had a gray saddle on his back.

:( It could be because lighting is not my friend in here. I am definitely going to keep my eyes open for any white budding up though, if it does happen, I will start treatment for it.

This makes sense to me. I have a blue betta who has those blue iridescent scales in the same spot. To me, it just looks like the lighting in the picture...

Update!

Got an ammonia test kit. The results were 0. I did just give him a 100% change the other day though.

I have some Kanaplex on standby just in case.

I also bought him some Omega One Betta Buffet but it is flakes. :/ My experience with this betta and flakes is he spits them right out. Not sure if I should give them a try or just return them.

He is fasting today, so I have time to think on it.

I also got him a betta hammock because yay more environment for him!

The hammock needs to have the wire removed from it because it can rust and cause toxic water issues.

Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

YW :) I heard bettas love those! I've always just packed lots of silk plants with leaves like the hammock leaf and I know my bettas do love those :)
