Hey everyone, I posted about a week ago regarding my betta. It was determined that he has a mild case of fin rot. So, I've been doing 100% daily water changes while he is in his heated 2 gallon tank. This has been going on for about eight days now. However, I noticed two days ago a white string of something coming off his fins. What the heck is it and what am I supposed to do now?!

It's pretty difficult to see, especially in pictures, but if you look at the first picture on the end of the heater, there is a white line over the black part of the heater... Hope this helps.

Oh and forgot to say, the stringy stuff is Slime Coat shedding because the AQ salt irritates the coat so they overproduce the slime and the old coat sheds off. So yes, you can stop the salt and daily changes.
