It's the white spot behind his eye. There are no other spots. Eating well, acting mostly normal except a little lazy.

Suggestions?

Hard to say to test for ick you could try the flashlight technique, if negative I would monitor for any changes in swimming,, clamped fins, flashing, struggling for air, lethargic etc.. Could be something as minimal as a growth similar to what mammals get with skin tags.

Monitor it. My very similar betta (female tho) has a white spot/growth on her belly for a few months now. I was nervous at first but it really isn't a big deal.

If you see any more similar spots over the next few days, expect it to be an illness of some sort. Otherwise, just assume what the above people said...it may just be some sort of fishy pimple.
