Hey guys my female betta lost a lot of scales when she had pop-eye. I noticed this little spot where her scales haven't seemed to grow back yet and there was some white in it... Is that a parasite or just a new scale? (I've noticed the scales growing back in are a white color) sorry about the air bubbles, just did a full water change a couple days ago after the pop-eye incident and now there's air bubbles
My last betta had 1 or 2 scales missing. If Bluestar has lost some scales it should look like a little shiny metallic spot. Like the scales of "Rainbowfish" in the children's book Anything else could be bacteria or fungus.
Stickies will have some information on it. If it looks like cotton it might very well be bacterial and not fungal. If you don't have anything on hand for treating that then AQ salt will help and even make it go away.
