This morning i saw that my betta had a little hole in her anal fin near her body. i couldnt post about it because i had to get to school. When i can back from school the hole grew 3 times the size and is shredding the fin and what ever it is, it is now infecting the side of her body.
She has had a little discoloration where the infection is. I also just did a 100% water change last night, and she showed no symptoms and looked perfectly fine then.
