weird white stuff on my betta fish
My male betta fish has this white stuff on his body and i want to know wut it is. It looked like his scales were coming off but the color is just fine. maybe a fungal infection??? He hasn't been eating lately. When he eats he spits it his pellet food right back out and dosn't even touch them again . Sometimes he ignores thr food that was given to him. he likes them the first time he ate them. What is this white stuff caused by?

Can you post a picture?
What are your water parameters? (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, ph, etc).

i'm not sure about the fungus but he might not be eating because of it.

Either fungus or columnaris. Mild fungal infections will disappear from dose of salt but do not try dosing aquarium salt on long-term basis. It's there for emergencies only.

if his scales seem to be coming off it could be dropsey which affects the internal organs. I dont know that much about it so do some research and maybe gets some medication. The white stuff could be velvet, a fungal infection.
