Ive had this little guy 5 days now . I opened the lid at home and I noticed he had a white spot on his top lip. I checked and there's no other white spots , like ick, anywhere. Just his lip.

The day I got him, I acclimated him into my cycled 10 gallon stocked with tannin and plants. I did 25% WC the first 3 days just to be safe . Water parameters are 7.0/0/0/10.

Does the dot look fungal and will it spread ? It's been 5 days and it hasnt gotten worse ! But it hasn't gotten better .

Only thing I have for him is Aquarium salt and IAL/rooibos tea. Should I start dosing with medication now ? Or wait and see if clean water will help it go away .

I was just hoping to see a little improvement by now being in a clean tank :/

Any tips or recommendations? Dont want to lose this beautiful boy

If it were me I’d stay the course as long as he’s active and eating and there’s no new growth.
I’ve freaked out more times than I care to admit over odd coloration and spots on the bettas in particular. Sometimes it’s just a marking or a small spot of damage.

Yeah considering he came with the dot, It's hard to say what it is. It's so small I can't tell if its fuzzy . Hopefully it will go away being with him in a tank .

If it does get worse or happen to spread , would Furan-2 work? Or have you used any medication that's worked for you?
