    You are sure it not Ich? its pretty common for it to show up after temp swings....since he is otherwise acting okay...I would watch the area for changes-it may resolve on its

    Hey again,

    Sorry for the second question in two days. :S I'm wondering if you can help me with Dallas again...

    He has a little... thing on his left pectoral. It's white- not bright, but faded. It's not in a perfect circle, either, it's just this little misshapen lump sitting there in the middle. It's one or two times bigger than a dot of ich. He might have another very small one beside it, but it's hard to tell, as he's very active and doesn't stay still for long.

    Yesterday, when his water was a too hot for him (accidentally- he was fine when the water cooled down) he held that same pectoral to the side while he was swimming. Now, however, and when his water had cooled down, he used it regularily, and so far has been today.

    I'm wondering if it could be an odd parasite of some sort? I've never come across this before. Or maybe a tumor or a growth? He seems fine with it, eats, swims aroung happily, flares, etc. I don't know what it is.

    Thank you.

    Hello Oldfishlady, I have a very sick betta, and after posting in the emergency forum, PewPewPew recommended that I contact you. I've posted detailed information and some photos. I'm very sad and distraught for my friend. I hope you will be able to help. The thread is in the emergency forum (apparently this won't let me send a link).

    Hi Oldfishlady. I'm not sure if you remember me from way back but I used to be Mushu on here. I lost my password and had to make a new account. You had answered a lot of my questions considering my tank set-up with plants and nitrite/nitrate levels. Well, I've improved a lot and have two beautiful planted tanks and I have successfully bred Bettas!!
