Symptoms and Treatment
Betta has a white, fuzzy growth on his gill that seems to be getting bigger. It looks similar to a growth he had a few months ago
, except it's now noticeably fuzzy and larger. The first time might have been a zit (?), but now I'm suspecting columnaris. He is also staying on the bottom of the tank and avoiding use of that fin. So far I've done a water change and lowered the temperature a few degrees.
At what point can I medicate for something like this? I don't want to jump the gun, but I also want to nip this in the bud if possible....
Thanks for looking.
