'Ello there. I'm new to the form, but I've always come here for information in the past.
My lovely betta Spirk, is in a gallon glass tank. And yes, I know it should be bigger, however I have horrible medical issues right now, and for the time being can only handle one gallon. But I plan to upgrade once I get better, whenever that may be. I feed him Top Fin betta bites, and he loves 'em to death. I have a heater that's set at 78 degrees, but no filter. I do 100% water changes everyweek, and 50% between each of those.
So, last night while dealing with some insomnia, I saw that Spirk had this fleck on the side of his head, however it looks like a scale that just desided to come off. There's nothing else on his body from what I can tell. And it's quite hard hence the fact he's mostly lilac. He's very active, like he's always been, and he eats just fine. However me, being overly worried, just wanted to make sure it wasn't ick or something.
Care to help a lad out?
