Hi ! i need immediate help so i’m coming here sorry if i’m breaking any rules i’m new and i’m panicking. My betta has this weird bubble on his fin. AHHH <—- that’s the link. He’s acting normally and isn’t lethargic and hasn’t lost appetite. It just popped up today. What is this? Do i need to move him to a quarantine tank? Will he die? Please help. He has two ottocinclus tank mates in a 10 gallon.

UPDATE; I just realized after looking at old photos and videos that this is something he’s had. It was just so much smaller it wasn’t noticeable.
