    i bought a male veil tail betta at a local Petsmart 6 months ago, I put him in a 3.5 gallon filtered tank and he was very happy and active. Recently he started spending time on the bottom of the tank (which was rare for him) and losing his scales. Sadly, he passed away before I knew what it was. This is what it looked like. What is this? What happened to him?

    When asking diagnosis questions, it's helpful to post the following info about your tank (or just fill it out in your profile):
    Temperature:
    pH:
    Ammonia:
    Nitrites:
    Nitrates:
    KH/GH is you know it.
    It helps narrow things down.
    Did you add anything to the tank around the time he died? Any other animals? Items?
