Exclamation Help with Merlin!!

When I got out of the shower today, I was looking over all my babies. And when I looked at Merlin, I noticed that he had spider web looking things hanging from his bottom fins. I don't know what it is and I don't want anything to be wrong with him. Anyone know what this is and can help me?? Please and thanks for any advice.

Do you use a water conditioner with aloe vera in it? I had white stuff hanging off of my first betta and when I switched water conditioners, the problem went away.

Yeah, its whitish, swirly stuff. I used to use Stresscoat as my conditioner but it made the swirly stuff so I switched to Aquasafe. (sorry' Mr Vampire! lol)

If you've had no problem then I wouldn't worry about it.

So I dunno. I guess I'll keep an eye on it. He's got the white web looking things and where they're connected to his fins, the part of his fin is white too. Ugh. This bothers me.
