Question What can cause this?

This betta is currently being treated with bacterial, fungus and parasite medication.
He had no signs of ick, but it does look like he has had some gill flukes come out after being medicated.

Does the area where the yellow lines point to look like a location where the scales have come off or a location where a parasite that could not be seen came out of since it looks indented to me?

He has also been in a hospital tank so there is no way it could have been caused by injury. From pictures I took and looking at him as closely as possible this is something that only cropped up after he had started to be treated and not before.

Those are just their nostrils. I saw in this picture of yours (in another post), he has them. I'm not sure if this is an older picture though:


If you look closely they are there.


This is a better picture of a different betta's face:

Thanks a million for the vivid picture and letting me know he doesn't have another problem on hand.

Good luck to you with him! It sounds like whatever he's got, he's been medicated for it, so hopefully he'll be good to go from here. :)

Thanks Blue Fish, as luck would have it increasing a parasite med in the water has gotten his body back down to normal size today. So hope has it he will either die being a normal size again or get better from here.
