Hi everyone, first post
:)

I own 1 Betta and 1 Mystery snail in a 21 litre (5.5 gallon) tank. Water parameters: ph 7.5, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate between 0 and 5.0.
Ivar (the Betta) is acting totally normal, active, eating, interacting - not twitching or darting or rubbing. But I noticed this white patch on his head this morning and I am stumped? There are no other irregularities on his body - no white spots, no fin rot, etc.
Opinions please as to what this might be as I am very worried and am unsure if I should go ahead with a treatment or not.
Edit: it kind of looks like a flat spot of missing scales, could he have gotten stuck in an ornament overnight and rubbed a scale off?
