I didn't fill out my last thread very well so this is my redo.
My betta i noticed about 4 days ago is turning white, it started at his dorsal fin and is now starting to cover his whole body. He doesn't seem to be lethargic and he still has an appetite his activity hasn't really changed at all just his color.
I bought him aquarium salt and betta fix. Im worried to use them though just in case he isn't sick and I end up killing him with medicine.
Im in the process of switching him to a 10 gallon tank with a heater and filter.
