Black Dot

My betta has a dark spot under his skin. It kinda looks like what a bruise looks like on a person. It's about the size of his eye and it's located above his belly. He had SBD and I think that caused permanent damage, because some days he can swim well, and other days he just floats around at the top.

Anyways, what could the dark dot be?? I'll try to post a picture when I get a chance.

I have no idea, but I've noticed the same thing on one of mine, here's hoping someone can help out.

One of mine has them, I thought (and hoped) that it was just coloring.

I just noticed it a couple days ago. It's not there all the time, mostly at night. Weird. I attached a picture and you can see it. Sorry it's so blurry. :/ He also seems kind of pale.

Looks like his stomach or intestines. I can see the same on all of my light colored fish. Doesn't look like a concern to me :)

No worries, it is only his digestive track... it's probably poop ;)
