I just noticed this morning that my betta has a white spot by his tail and it looks as if the scales that were over it were scraped off or something. It's not ich, I can tell that much, and the spot isn't fuzzy or anything. It's like the white spot "popped" through the scales. I don't know.
Background information: The betta was in our 20 gallon tank with our guppies. They didn't bother each other. My neighbor moved and had 4 goldfish they couldn't take with them, so they gave them to us. I put them in the tank with the betta and the guppies, knowing that the betta could react to the goldfish I stood there and watched. He did get upset with the goldfish, never attacked, but was real close to it, so I removed the betta and put him back in his own tank. That was on Sunday. He's lost his appetite and now hangs out at the bottom of the tank. I don't know whether to be conserned or whether he's just depressed because he's in his small tank again.
