my beeta has a greyish, whitish spoch on its head, at first I thought it was Ich, but there's no other white spots on the body and the head spot is over 1mm(i think thats the max size of ich spots. Now, I could be worried bout nothing since I could've bought it thought way(i honestly dont remember) but to me, it really doesnt seem right if I bought it that way.

Ok its just easier to see what you mean. Usually white spots are Ich. How long has your tank been running?

Do you have a test kit to check the water? How often have you done water changes?
I do not have a test kit(that probaly would be a good thing to invest in) but Hes the only fish and all the decor is fake, so In hange the water every week, it was a whole new week b4 the rooom was deorginazed so probs 21/2 week b4 tuesdaynight, at wich point I did around a 45% wc. I also should point out that on the ninth, I found my water heater unplugged, so I dont know if if was unplugged the full 3 days or less timeAlso, heres the pics. As you can see he also has some fin rot. He seems to be decreasing in health since this thread first start, but I dont know if its simply because he decreasing, or ifthe effects of that 2 1/2(1 week, depending on how u look) is just catching up with him

Can't tell from the photo, but if it was ich, there would be many tiny white spots on the fish. A single white spot is not ich, unless it's the first visible spot, then there will be many more in a matter of hours.

It could be any one of a number of things, fungus, injury, anchor worm. The fin rot is troubling as well. Whatever it is, when two ailments present at the same time it's almost always a water quality issue. I didn't really understand what you were saying about water changes, but being aggressive with partial water changes is the first thing I do whenever I so much as dream about a problem in my tanks.

If it is a white spot i think it could be a cyst if it isnt ich. It could also be an early tumor. Cysts look like this picture I found on google of a betta. If it looks like this, it's probably a cyst.
its not a cyst or a tumor, that I know
