Hello, I’m new to the forum and would appreciate your help.
A little over a year ago I bought a Betta for my fiancée as a surprise gift. She fell in love with the Betta, now named Ares. We’ve had no issues with him until a few days ago when my fiancée started noticing that he was acting weird. Ares used to flare up every time we’ll get close to his tank and was full of energy. At first he was slightly on his side (although that has seemed to stop), doesn’t flare up as much and he hides a lot. At first I thought it was dropsy but then I got a closer look at him and that’s when I saw that he had white specks on both his eyes and his scales looked a bit white by the belly. Could this be Ich? He is in a planted 2.5g aquarium. Will attach picture.
