So it's been a month since I first posted, & while Ling-Ling's lethargy stopped & she's eating properly, the white dot on the bottom of her body between her head and her bottom fin is still there. I just recently (within the past week) stopped the medication & put the carbon back in her filter. She seems happy, as she's blowing many bubbles at the top of her tank, BUT:
The area of her body where the white dot is seems to have grown a lot. I thought maybe I've been feeding her too much, although what's weird about it is she looks almost pregnant (which isn't possible, as she has never had any contact with a male betta or water a male betta has been swimming in). In the bloated-looking area, it's like white is beginning to show through her naturally blue scales. She's acting fine (although a couple times, she swam around the tank so rapidly it was hard to keep track of her-this may be normal, though, as I am home more lately than before & may just never have taken notice to this?), but I just want to catch anything before it gets too severe. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
