I think my betta fish has velvet, but I'm not sure, and I don't know what exactly to do.
He had several white spots around his head, and on his sides, he has this light covering of grey/gold. But, the thing is, he isn't acting any different. It's been like this for about a week now, and he's still eating fine, doesn't look sick other than the obvioius, and he hasn't been scratching himself on anything.
He's in a 5 gallon, heated/filtered tank. I bumped the temperature up to 82, and added a tablespoon of aquarium salt. I bought some Maracide, but I'm not sure if it's safe to give him if he doesn't actually have velvet.
Here are some pictures I just took. See how his head is white, and the gold dusting on his body and fins?
