Oh, ew. Can you describe the spot and the growth a little better? Particularly the texture and color of it. Is the betta acting sick, lethargic, is he still eating, etc?

Also, is the tank heated? What size is it? How much and how often do you do water changes?

The picture is useless... As for your fungus problem you may try aquarium salt...

the growth is white, it just apeared he seems to be acting fine. He is still eating and acting like a normal fish, his tank is a gallon, not heated. The growth just looks like a little white patch with a bump


thanks:)
