Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? a discoloured patch, it looked almost... uh like something was coming off her.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? hasn't
When did you start noticing the symptoms? just now
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? put in QT and floating in the tank
Does your fish have any history of being ill? not that I know of
How old is your fish (approximately)? spawned in January.
I've QTed her as soon as I saw her. I had a major panic moment worried it was cottony. Hoping it's just missing scales. She is my alpha, and a bully. She has a piece out of her anal fin. I don't know if she got hurt, maybe missing a few scales or has some slime coat coming off. She does like to sleep inside the mouth of my dragon statue, so I don't know if it's from rubbing against the teeth as she wiggled in and out. Included pics, hopefully I'm panicking for nothing.
This is the side that looks like it has issues.
And this is her other side, as you can see she was stressed out during this.
