I’m struggling with my betta right now, he has been doing fine up until recently. Around two days ago he started to look ‘dusty’ if you get what I mean and being a little more lethargic. His scales and fins look like they’re coated in something. No changes in appetite but he’s not as active as before. I’m worried he’s sick but I don’t know what it is. Please help
I have melafix but I don’t know if I should be using that or something else???
Pictures attached.

When you say “dusty”, my mind immediately goes to velvet. Have you tried shining a light on him? Velvet will look sort of like a gold dust is covering him, shining a light can help you get a better look. I’ve heard bad things about Melafix being used on bettas, so I’d stop that treatment ASAP. What are your water parameters?
