Pink Spots

    My betta had one pink spot on his bottom fin near his stomach when I got him. There are now more spots around the first one. I have been using BettaFix for a few days but was hoping to find out what it is and if there is maybe a different medicine I should be using.
    Thanks!
    ((Also- the more I've read trying to figure out what to do for his spots, I learned plastic plants aren't good for him so we will be changing them out.))

    First off can we get ur parameters, temp, tank size? Bettafix is not a good idea to use..bettas have a labyrinth organ which acts like a lung enabling them to breath air..tea tree oil/melaleuca oil in bettafix can damage the labyrinth organ

    Don't start using the meds, bettafix isn't that great. Looks to me it is just his coloration. My betta has a similar "see through" spot in the same area as yours. He used to be nearly all white, then turned nearly all black/dark blue but still has a tiny bit if white on his head and then the clear spot on his anal fin.
