Betta with white and curled fins!
Woo here I go again. Alrighty, I have another possible disaster on my hands! I have a lovely little orange betta I've named Sunspot. I keep him in a one gallon jar, changing the water every week. He seems happy enough, swimming around and wriggling his butt :P
However, I just noticed tonight that the tips of his fins seem to have begun to lighten in color, even turning whitish. They're also curling! I've done some research and I'm torn between this being a genetic trait he's growing into (he was small when I got him, figuring he's young), or whether it's the beginning of tail rot. I also noticed after walking away and walking back that he either barfed or pooped a rather big poop for a fishy, with a light green color floating away from it. Ick.
Is my poor Sunspot sick? If so, what could it be and how can I treat it?
