Question Weird bubble/blister on Betta

One of my Bettas has developed a "bubble" on him; it's on his side, behind his head -- not his eyes. It looks like a blister. I have him in ES, changed daily, for about a week now. He behaves fine, sometimes a little lethargic, but usually just fine. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Deb

A pic would be helpful. Water parameters; ammonia, nitrites, nitrates? Size of tank? Filtered? Heated? Tank mates? A littel more info. is needed to better advise you.

Okay, he was in a one gallon tank, water changed weekly. The water is treated - parameters, I don't know, since it is fully changed weekly I do not check it. No filtration, and room temperature (70-72 degrees). I'll try to get a picture, but want send this out.

Thank you!

Question Help!

I've attached a picture, the blister is right above his fin...any suggestions would be great. He is in a sick tank, a small kritter keeper for treatment.
