This morning noticed the end of one fin was white at the tip. Posted the question to my journal thread and no one suggested anything so far. It is currently 8:57 pm EST almost 12 hours later and noticed there are now 3 or 4 spots where the ends are kind of white and fuzzy looking. No decorations are in the tank. Just three baby plants.

Now, really hard to get a good photo, but definitely a bit more fuzzy and white is more noticeable.

Any other symptoms? If you are talking about the tips, almost looks clear to me, like growth/regrowth. I don't mess with crowntails anymore because i was always got so paranoid about the fintips...

No other symptoms that I can think of. Still active about the same, eating well, making bubbles like usual.

The really weird thing is I gently caught him to get a better look and all the white fuzzy-ness seemed to fall off as I caught him and looks completely fine...

Maybe I am just a super paranoid betta mother with this being my first one and scared I am doing things wrong :confused:
