Hi,
My betta has some white slime on his back and under mouth. I am not sure if it's slime coat damage or something else. Any thoughts? Tank is fully cycled.

Water parameters:
  • TDS 200 ppm
  • PH 7
  • GH 6 dGH
  • NO3 10ppm
  • NO2 0
  • 25 °C / 77 F
I am dosing liquid CO2 every day (can be an issue?).
Thanks

Watch in case it develops into bacterial infection (columnaris/flexibacter/araemonas). If it does you will see the blue shine starting to go, and may notice white parches around the lips and eyes. Get back to me if you see that. But often it is just grime.
