We have noticed our son's Betta, Blueberries, has faded from the bright blue to almost black here recently. He has also started to develop a white spot on his back that I just noticed today cleaning the tank. He used to be very active, now he just lays on the surface, right under the light, sometimes he lays on his side, sometimes not. Our son feeds him every morning, not exactly sure how much he feeds the fish, but Im sure after looking at some of the other posts its too much. What's up with Blueberries? Thanks for any help in advance.
Just looked at him closer and it looks like the white spots are where he is losing fins both on his back and his tail.
