It does look a lot like a fungus. JFE and salt should be perfect. For scarlet maybe just a few days of JFE to be on the safe side, the salt should not be necessary if she is not showing any signs of infection. Next time your fish come up for air, try and look in their mouth. I noticed that while my one fish had a bacteria the most serious infection was inside his mouth... impossible to see while he was just swimming.

Sorry that the others found it necesary to hijack your topic.

Thank you for the help! I didn't think to look in their mouths, I'll be sure to do that when I check on her again.

Okay, so I just noticed some white fuzzy looking stuff growing from my betta's right gill! It's only been there since yesterday but seems to have doubled in size. I just moved him from a 2.5gl to a filtered, heated 5gl and am worried about stressing him and doing a 100% change to clean the water. I don't think Melafix is the cure, but not sure. Help!
