Anyone? I'm so worried about him!!
This is my first post on this forum. I was referred here by a few members from the planted tank forum... I don't know what to do here, I've never had a sick betta before!

Looks like genetics. Are his eyes a more cloudy color or more of a red color?

To be safe I'd feed him a little piece of garlic and quarantine him with marine grade salt in the water. Methane blue is good stuff to have around as well.
