I noticed that my betta has white specs towards the back of his body on his scales near his tail fin. What kind of sickness/parasite is this, and what do I need to do to fix the problem? I've never had a sick fish before in my life, and am completely lost on what to do in this position. Any help would be awesome. Oh, If I take the fish out and treat him, does it make the tank "sick," not allowing me to put other fish in it without doing something like bleaching the tank? I have some plants in there, and don't want to treat the tank itself if at all passable. There is also some moldy-looking stuff on my driftwood, but those are just diatoms, right?
