Bettas have scales. What else would be sticking up in those photos?? Skin definitely does not get raised in that way. The last time you got a bug bite or bruise, did your skin look like that . When a betta gets swollen in any area, it forces the scales upward, unlike in humans who have skin. We just get a bump.

Excellent news!!! It took about a week for my fish to not be bloated, and a day or two after that before I couldn't see any raised scales. Sounds like she will be okay. :D

UPDATE:
SCOTT FARCUS IS BETTER!!! YAAAY!!!
she is no longer bloated at all and the scales are pretty much back to normal. she is lively and eating well and expeling waste. yay!

she is weird though. idunno if she's just got a weird personality or if she's mildy traumatized from being sick? swims around the surface alot and blows bubbles. then eats them O__o. then re-blows them.
