Need help to cure my friend betta

I hope someone can help me. I have my friend betta but now he seems very sluggish and stays at the bottom of his home/tank. I noticed some white patches beneath his body (encircled in yellow). How can I cure him and is this the reason why he stays at the bottom of his home/tank?



Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much!

Looks like his coloring to me but if you're really concerned you'll need to provide more information: tank size? heated? water change schedule? food? tank mates? fish age? water conditioner?

Fill out the form and one thing that can be done now is to do a water change with adding of water conditioner and cleaning of the tank as water chemistry often a problem. Otherwise we still need more info.
