Hi everyone! I have a beta named Simon. I've had him since December 11th and I bought him in a Walmart. When I got him he was very nervous and he's still like that to this day. He's a very loving fish as that I have a toy octopus inside his bowl and he loves on it whenever he feels the need to or when I put him back in his newly changed water. Anyhow, Simon has developed this white rash looking stuff on his back. Also, I'm sorry for such a huge photo, but you can clearly see it when it's bigger. Does anyone know what this could be? He's in very poor mental health due to Walmart I believe. I bought two more Beta's around Christmas and they seem to be happy/fine. Simon rarely builds a bubble nest.
He has his water changed roughly from 1-2 times per week (depending on whether it's really nasty).
He is very picky and doesn't eat nearly as much as my other Betta fishes.
Also, I'd been adding QuICK Cure to his water every day but I had stopped and since about 2 days ago he formed this "fuzzy" looking stuff (shown in the photo below of course) on his back.
He's living in the best home I can afford for him right now. What do you think?
