Exclamation White fuzz on betta...

So I'm still learning how to take care of my betta's, and am also learning that what I was told at the Pet Store may not be sufficient in taking care of my betta's.

So quick background, 2 gallon tank, two female betta's who DON'T FIGHT.

But lately one has accumulated some kind of fungus, it looks like light fuzz. What do I do? Medicine? And will I have to separate each betta in order to use the medicine, and what is the cost?

Thanks!

Yep, you need to seperate them, but use the medicine even on the one who doesn't have fungis, because It might be in the begging stage.

Thanks guys, I was really disappointed :( but at least now my one betta gets the two gallon tank to herself.
I'll probably purchase some medicine too, just in case Piper gets sick too.

When i was younger we had bettas and they got the same thing (is that ich?) and since we didn't catch it soon enough they both ended up dying :( but if you can catch it in time they should be fine

White, cottony patches may be fungus, which can be treated with Jungle Fungus Clear or Jungle Fungus eliminator.One is a powder and one is a tablet.

My guess is that a majority of fish that end up getting sick, have had the disease since they were at the store (don't know how long you have had yours?) and just haven't really shown (or have beem treated to not show) the disease
