    I don't really see anything abnormal. Does he look like he can see?

    So it's the first picture, the left eye, or just in front is slightly swollen, it has two white spots, and one that I can only describe as a 'black head/zit/pimple'. The second picture is the good eye

    I see what you mean now. How old is your Betta? I have heard that when Bettas get older they can develop problems with their eyes.

    So I have been monitoring my little guy very closely, and he seems down. He ate some flakes this Morning and I threw in some daphnia (his fave treat) and we'll, he was so disinterested I'm now concerned.

    It's not on his eye, but around it.
