Hi, My betta fish, Vida, has been lethargic lately and not eating much as he used to. Today, he ate 1 pellet and that is it. I noticed his skin has been changing as in certain spots in his scales have been getting lighter.
I was wondering what I should do to help him. I have betta fix and I have Kordon's Rid Ich Plus disease treament. Should I use one of those?
Here's a picture of him.
