Is this a growth or evidence of a parasite on my betta?


Recommended Posts

I was taking pictures for the show off your betta post and noticed that the white spot on Rilian’s tail (which I previously thought was just his coloration seems to protrude slightly.

When I compared it with a picture of him that I took a couple of weeks ago the white spot was not there. (See first picture.)

Another interesting thing that I noticed is that when he swims so that the light is behind him, the light shines through that spot!  (So would that mean it is filled with fluid??)

Now I can see the white spot on both sides of his body.

Does anyone have any insight, suggestions or questions that might help me help the guy out?  

He is active and his appetite is voracious as always.
