I just woke up this morning and my betta had little white dots on her. It looked like dust. I only noticed it when I was feeding her this morning and she is acting fine and eating. I am going to do a water change today and see if they just fall off. Should I be worried? Sorry that I don't have any pics, even if I did, you probably wouldnt see the spots. My camera is hard to work....
