I started noticing what looks like poo, but it's white, in my bettas' tank. It's only on Tina's half of the tank. This was before I added the shrimp in. I'm hoping they'll help with my horrible influx of algae. I'm not sure what could be wrong, or if anything even is wrong. Tina doesn't look any different than before, so I'm not sure if it's something internal, or if she's just fine and has been eating something she shouldn't be. Patriot seems fine, so I'm not sure what could be causing it. Should I even be worried?
