My Betta Pepper seems to be shedding his slime coat. I was just wondering what would cause this because it's been happening for a week or two now, usually right after I change his water which is about every other day. Just thought I would ask about it now because this white-ish slime stuff seems to be coming off more now. I'm positive its not cotton-mouth or anything because it comes off in the water and it usually gone within a day or two. Just seems more excessive this time.
But anyways, just wondering what could cause this. I do use conditioned water, pre-mixing it in a gallon jug. He's in a 2.5 Critter Keeper and the heater keeps the water between 76*F and 78*F.
This didn't seem like an emergency so I posted here. He still eats well and is very active.
