My new Betta is behaving perfectly fine-swimming around, fins upright,eats, blows bubble nests and his color is vibrant,too. BUT he has this strange patch between his eyes.......I did see him stick his face into the intake of the water filter-I don't know if he injured himself or if he somehow has a disease. I have had him for about 1.5 weeks.....tank was cycled before he showed up
I have a picture but need to figure out how to post it here!
