Identify this condition:

Sorry, I don't have a camera. It is just a small, light colored "patch" on the side of a female Betta I just bought. I didn't think much of it at first and thought she just had some funny coloring patterns, but upon closer inspection, it appears to be raised. Is this treatable? Will it go away with good water conditions and proper care? I know the water she arrived in was gross and she is now in a cycled, filtered tank with perfect water.

How is she acting and appetite? its hard to say what it could be without a pic...but if she is overall acting and eating like a normal Betta in a new setup-the improved conditions and care..... it may resolve on its own.....to be safe I would keep her housed by herself until you are able to rule out anything infectious.....

Thanks, she acted fine, but I just got back from trading her in. I just bought her this AM and didn't want to take any chances. I say she had a fungus. She was one of the nicest I had seen and wanted to keep her, but decided against it.
