So, I'm pretty new here, but I thought that maybe I could get some advice from some more experienced betta fish owners. I've had my betta fish for close to a year now. I cleaned my fish's tank about a week ago and since I cleaned it I've noticed that he has had some white spots showing up on him. The first one turned up on the top of his head, its pretty big and covers pretty much his whole head. Then a few days later another one turned up on his side, also pretty large. I'm not sure what's going on. He seems to be acting normal, there hasn't been any change in behavior. He eats his food the same. Swims around. Makes his bubble nests. So nothing abnormal besides the spots.
I'm not sure if someone else has maybe had this happen to their fish? Its as if his normal color peeled off, really strange. I don't have any pictures right now, but I can probably post some later to show what the spots look like.
If anyone can offer any advice it would be helpful.
