Hello! I've noticed white fuzzy looking things on my betta's ventral fins for a few days now. Can anyone help me figure out what it is? Is this a cause for concern and is there a way to remove the "fuzz" from his fins?
Fungus, bacteria and viruses are everywhere, all around us all the time. They are in your tank. That 's normal. The infection is usually opportunistic. It occurs when the conditions are right for it. In fish, stress can be the culpret. Stress can be caused by many things like physical or chemical injury / irritation, too much light, harrassment from other fish, overcrowding, shipping, etc, etc.Oh, I sure hope not :/ how does fungus occur though?
