 I  have  2  bettas  both  of  them  have  white  spots  on  their  bodies  and  fins.
 I  got  a  blue  liquid  from  a  LFS.  The  shopkeeper  told  me  to  add  4-5  drops  of  the  liquid  in  approx  500ml  of  water  and  dip  the  bettas  in  it  for  20min  and  then  put  them  back  in  fresh  water.
 I  have  done  this  and  also  added  a  thermostat  and  now  the  temperature  has  been  increased  to  25  deg  C.  It  was  on  the  lower  side  earlier.
 The  person  also  told  me  to  check  the  water  temperature  and  if  the  water  feels  normal  to  the  hand,  its  ok.
 After  increasing  the  temperature,  the  white  spots  have  suddenly  increased.  Pl.  guide  what  to  do.
 Can  I  increase  the  temperature  further?  Is  the  process  being  done  correct?  The  bettas  have  stopped  eating  as  well.

 does  that  look  like  salt  granules  sprinkled  all  over  the  betta's  body??  If  so,  then  its  ICH,  seperate  them  from  any  other  fish  that  you  have  put  them  with.  Ask  for  medicine  that  treats  ICH,  raise  the  temp  to  27  C  or  28C.  Keep  up  the  water  changes  and  that  should  do  it.

 Thanks  for  the  reply.  I  treated  it  for  ich  with  a  blue  liquiud  I  got  from  the  LFS.  The  temperature  was  increased  too.  The  white  spots  increased  in  numbers  with  the  temperature  rise.  They  looked  better  the  next  day  but  unfortuantely  both  the  bettas  died  day  before  yesterday.

 Sorry  for  your  loss.
 
 Increasing  the  temperature  would  speed  up  the  lifecycle  of  the  parasite.  This  needs  to  be  treated  parallely.  Do  not  pick  up  medication  from  LFS  unless  they  are  well  known.
