    Tatsu has been acting great but I just noticed he has a tiny white spot on his front fin. He is acting fine super active, eating well. I dont know if its anything to worry about but asking cant hurt ... what looks like spot on his face aren't there in real life its from the flash and his scaled glimmer. but that one spot is bothering me. look close its on the fin he is sticking out

    It doesn't look like ick. It may be part of his fin - I know a few of mine have different spots on their fins that worried me at first, but it turned out it was just different colouring. I don't think it is anything to worry about.

    it is hard to tell front he picture but it doesn't look like ich.
    how long has it been there? is it flat to the fin? or protruding? and is it fury, or smooth? like a little spot of cotton, or a grain of salt?
    if i were u id keep a close eye on it, if it falls off, add salt immediately. do the same if it starts to grow or spread.
    if it falls off, it is very likely ich. what ich will do is, attach to a fish, make a cyst, the cyst will fall off, and then it will sit on the gravel for a while, then it will burst and a bunch of tiny trophants will swim out and reattach to ur fish. u can only kill ich in its free swim stage, (so when it is out of after the cyst has burst and before it finds another host).

    anyway, i wish u luck man.
    peace

    then it is not likely to be ich. pretty safe to rule it out.
    it is possible that it is the early stages of fin rot.
    or scabbing over tissue damage.
    but at least now it is a good thing if it falls off =P.
    just watch very carefully for spreading.
    good luck.

    i just got him very recently but there is nothing in his tank that could hurt him. And i dont think fin rot would start in the middle of the fin

    it can, but ur right it isnt likely too. although it has happened to one of my fish. but i only noticed it when it looked like a little pin hole.
    id just keep an eye on it.

    For a ten gallon tank, that stocking sounds fine. But just beware that your betta may eat the ghost shrimp. Though he may not. I have many different bettas, and they are all quite different. A few of mine would eat the ghost shrimp, though not all of them would. So it will depend entirely on your betta. But in my experience, almost all fish love to eat shrimp. Just thought you should keep an eye on them.
