Beta Passed Away Question

  1. Reefdweller Well Known Member Member

    Hey everyone - My daughters beta died yesterday and I was not home when it happened although we knew he was not acting right. He seemed rather lifeless the last few days. I cleaned his tank good on Friday and placed a little medicine in the tank as a sort of cure all type med. I knew it was too late but I wanted to try to see if it helped. The question I have is the fish had turned all white through his head and some on his body, He was a blue beta and of course this was not his natural color but I have never had a fish die with this type disease. I know its sort of a generic description of how he looked but its all I have to go by. I told my wife on the the phone to just be sure and get him out of the tank right away. Have you guys ever seen this type disease before?

    Not enough information. Was the tank cycled, heated, or filtered?

    Yes the tank is cycled, heated and has a backpack filter. The other fish in the tank are fine and doing very well.
