Hi, my betta Ramsey has developed a white spot above his head right above his eye. It isn't fuzzy and it hasn't spread to anywhere else on his body. It's in the same spot for the past week and a half. I have treated him with betta fix, maracyn 1&2 and the aquarium salt method too. Please help! His personalty hasn't changed. He isn't acting sick at all. I ran out of my water testing kit yesterday and where I live is having bad storms (tornados and what not) so I'll have to go get a new one tommorrow.
