This morning I was checking in on my crowntail betta, Vincent, this is when I started to notices some white flecks on his tail fins. This is actually new. I have moved to college had had done his second full water change yesterday since our move. I have always had issues with his tank as whenever I do a full water change there is a film on the top of it. I even changed the filter.
But this white stuff on his fins is new. He's energy level is the same.

I have him in a 2.5 gallon tank, it's filtered, but unheated. When I bought filters yesterday I had purchased a thermometer to stick to his tank (outside)

Is there anyway to tell for sure if this is cotton fin fungus? And how do I get rid of the film on top of his tank? This always happens after a full water change and goes away in a few days but in all the years I've had bettas this is the first time I've had this issue with the tank.


The picture that I uploaded (attempted) shows the film on the top and some of the white on Vincent's fins. It's rather small but it's there.

Thanks
Jess

What brand of water conditioner do you use? Many leave a film on the surface like that, so it's probably just your conditioner, hence it always happens after a water change. As for the white on his fins, I can't really say without a clearer picture.

I've always used TopFin Betta Water Conditioner

And I've taken a new phone of it, but it's really small so it's difficult to tell, plus he likes to move whenever I try to take a picture
