just a quik question i have had my betta named blue for about a month now in a 1.5 gallon tank with 2 plants and a hammock leaf, water temp is 72degrees i feed in 1 or 2 times a day with tetrabetta pellets 3 or 4. I do a 40% water change every 3 0r 4 days after 2 partial changes i do a 95% water change. he is an active fish swims around quite a bit, he also comes and greets me everytime he sees me. i did a 95% water change yesterday and today i noticed he has a tiny (looks kind of like a gold flake) glittery or shinny spot on the end of his gill kind of by his lil finn. he eats and seems to be ok. all i want to know is that can his color of face change through out his growth or life? or could it be something else?

Has anyone tried permanganate potassium treatment for this disease?

Graphite Disease? Please Help (PICTURE)



I am almost certain this is what he has, I was here about a week about posting about his bulge and him acting weird and suddenly I noticed this. I am expecting the worst.
