  6. White with spots/pathces

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My beta used to be bright red. He is now almost all white with black spots. The spots aren't protruding or anything. He just looks like a beta with natural spotted coloring. However I know this was not his original color. What is happening?
