Planted tank that does have algae growing that looks white and has puffy spots.
Type of food: Betta color enhancing bits, Betta Bio gold, and freeze dried blood worms. He gets the worms once to twice a week.
Feeding: Hes big so 3 pellets twice a day and an equivalent amount on blood worm day.
Water Change: Once a week sometimes twice 20% each time
Additives are a de chlorinator and conditioner and liquid fertilizer.
Have not been able to do a water test yet but I don't think they are outside normal limits but I just don't know.
His head has greenish tints, that look like velvet or algae hard to tell he won't sit still long enough to examine or take a picture. It looks kind of like he is shedding green stuff but its faint and hard to notice. I'm not even 100% its bad but I know he looks different and I'm a worry wart.
He has started to sit around more often when he does swim he is just as quick as always he still flares at mirrors and has been flaring more at me as well.
I noticed 2 days ago and it hasn't gotten worse or better
No treatment he has had a water change recently
No history that I know of but I purchased him fully grown
Hes maybe about a year or a bit older hes big so this is just a guess
I think it may be velvet will it hurt to treat for it if he is not sick?
