My Bettas Gills are "uneven"?

Hi, I was just near my Bettas tank, and he flared his gills at me. That wierd skin stuff in his gills (Idon't know what it's called, lol) Came out of one gill alot.

But for some reason the skin on the other gill wont show very much. I tried to get pics but he rarely flares his gill

Could be a deformity. The flap of tissue should come out from both sides. Keep in mind sometimes they only flare one side.

Hmm I don't know which flap your talking about the flap of skin on mine is the one INSIDE the gill, both of the gills themselvs were raised but the skin inside the gill only came out on one gill.

Hope this clarifys things!

My first betta only had half a flare xD

Which was amusing. I think it was there, it just somehow had gotten stuck within his gills.
