This is my new Betta Bunny and she has been in the Hospital tank for a month while her tank cycled. Then I put her in her new tank 4 days ago. On the 3rd day she developed 2 red patches on her left side that were raised up and her scales were also sticking up in the red areas. I seen her shimmy once yesterday. She still eats and is very active. The cory catfish that are in there with her are fine.
You can see the red areas in the pictures. One is down by her bottom fin and the other is on top between her top fin and tail fin.
