I shall use that picture as reference, thanks a bunch! I just got a female crowntail falsely being advertised as a female veiltail. Shes larger than the other females, but smaller than my oldest.

I also removed one of my females from the tank, even though she was in her cup. I beleive she has the early stages of Fin-Rot.

I removed my halfmoon male into a cup and used his holding-tank as a hospital tank. It's a half-gallon tank.

The female has white spots on her dorsal, anal and lower back fins. Her anal fin also has a few tiny tiny holes, is a bit black at the tip, and has a missing peice. The missing peice was not in her cup.

Don't you love it when pet stores mislabel their bettas? I've definitely found a couple crown tail girls mislabeled too.
my best find was my green double tail girl. she was labeled a VT, so I only paid $2.89 for her

Side note: It sounds like your female has ich as well as fin rot. I'm no expert, so I am not the one to go to for treatment. Last time one of my girls had it I treated the whole tank with Kordon Ich Attack. The ich was gone after about a week or so.

The white spots covered the larger fins, and her tiny little anal fin is black at the tips. I have no idea where to get the medications for it, nor if my mother would be gracious enough to buy me the medications for her. . . Quite the issue indeed

Most major pet stores sell ich medication, I got the Kordon Ich Attack at Petco. I think it was like $8-10 ish.

Hmm. The spots don't really look like that, unless it comes in a slime form...

Yeah, when i realized she was a CT female and not a VT, I was both happy and unhappy. I keep hearing that CT's are highly aggressive, hence the unhappy paranoia part.

This is only my experience, but I have had no problems with my Crowntail and Combtail girls being more aggressive. If anything my VT girls are bigger punks then the others.

umm, here are other pics of Ich

Yeah. The white looks nothing like that. Its more of a slime-like whiteness. Mostly on the fins, not on the body, or the front fins.

I can try to get another. Would the flash from the phone make the situation more visible?

Possibly. Try to take one and see if it comes out any better. Or bring your girl near a light source and try again.

Sadly, this is the best that the phone would do at close range. It DID have a sharper picture, but, then the picture turned blurry. Low battery. I think she has very VERY early stages of Ich

Rather than medicating if you aren't sure, just turn the temperature up to 85 for a week and do daily 10-25% water changes. That should cause the ich to die within a week or so.
