My Betta fish Pete has been having white patches for months now and it grew from when he first had it.
He is in a 2.5 gallon tank alone. Water is changed regularly at least once a week, and since he’s been having what’s look like fin rot and fungus infection, water is changed twice a week and Indian almond leaves always added to the tank.

at first I’ve been treating him with BettaxFix and also seasalt but the white patches still there after finished 2 bottles.
Now he’s on API Body and fin powder cure. I change his water per the direction.
Please see pictures if there’s any else I could do.
* Pete himself is very active and eats fine. Just the patches are there and don’t seem that they will be gone anytime soon. He has a white lump near the fin on one side, a small grey patch on the other, and his too fin is turning white.
