Exclamation I'm a little concened. . .

Ok so I was looking a lucky and his colors were not as vibrent as usual. Plus, I noticed 2 white spots. One on his back and one above his right eye. I think its just his discoloration thing, and Im pretty sure its not Ich. Should I be Concerned? Any Tips?

(Sorry for the miss-spelling of concerned)

Well white spots really could be anything. My red betta seems to have "white spots" on his scales, but what they turned out to be were those colored scales. I can find a picture of it online (camera here is broke.) to make more sense, haha. I think he (my betta) was a failed attempt at something, I'm not sure. There's something peculiar about him haha.

Could you take a picture of him? Has he always had these spots or did you just notice them?

Just some background info: What size tank is he in? Is the tank heated?

This is another thread, but look at the picture posted - are the "white spots" similar to that? Only MUCH less amount? And somewhat random? (But basically, do they look like that)?

I noticed them a week ago. He hasnt had it before but it came when I put him in his new 2.5 gallon tank. No the tank is not heated but when I put my hand in (to take a plastic plant out) it felt fine. A litttle bit cool but fine.

No, Not like that. It's more like a white scale.

Since they're warm water fish, they need to be in a tank that is 76-80 degrees F or else they'll start getting lethargic. If you have the tank in a room that is constantly 75 degrees F or you live somewhere where it doesn't get cold (drop below 70's) than it should be fine.

Bloo - so it's a white scale, then? Good, I have those too :) And the white scales eventually turn... colorful? Not sure how to explain, but in a good angle of lighting, the scales shine out with what seems to be color. It's GORGEOUS~ hehehe.
