Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed?
He's pure white, but he's started turning bright red around his crown and fins.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed?
When did you start noticing the symptoms?
About a month ago.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how?
He's been acting like normal so I just kept his water clean and fed him a little less to see if it had anything to do with his diet.
Does your fish have any history of being ill?
How old is your fish (approximately)?
Have had him about 4 months
He doesn't seem to be distressed, he's active, his fins looks healthy as well as his body (except the color change) and he has an appetite. He's just... turning red. It's pretty drastic.
(Sorry it's blurry, I took this with my phone but the color is fairly accurate.)
