faded.mallard Posted August 3, 2022 Share Posted August 3, 2022 (edited) Hi all, This is my first post on here so bear with me haha. My male betta fish, Benedict, has a red/copperish spot on his head that I've never noticed before. I've had him since Nov 2021. His behavior is completely normal and he ate his whole meal of freeze dried daphnia earlier today. (We love to give a varied diet in this household haha). He is in a heated and filtered 5 gallon tank with some live plants and my apple snail, Sartre. The temperature is at a steady 78 degrees Fahrenheit. All of the parameters are where they should be (0 ppm ammonia, 0 ppm nitrite, about 20 ppm nitrate, pH is almost exactly 7). I'm just wondering if someone could help me out with figuring out what this spot could be. I'm starting to think it might be new coloration, but I would like to know if it's something I should be concerned with in case I need to pick up some meds. I already have Kordon's Ich Attack on hand. Thanks! I should also mention the stuff floating at the top is the daphnia he was munching on 🙂 there's also some crushed coral for my snail and some dragonstone hardscaping Edited August 4, 2022 by faded.mallard spelling error Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
