I've had my betta fish Willy for about a month now.
He's doing fine, but I'm just worried about his appearance.
I'm not sure if you can tell in the photos, but his head seems to be missing scales. This smooth, pinkish spot has been steadily growing.
And there are these black spots all over him now.
I think he had a little bit before I picked him up from the petstore, but I think it might have been increasing as well.
Is my fish okay?? Please help!!
