Just recently I noticed tiny white bugs on the glass of my betta tank. After research I was under the impression they were safe to have in an aquarium. I had doubts when numbers increased however the research still said the same. This morning I woke up to find the numbers exploded and now they are on my betta and he looks miserable. I really need options soon to help him please! I do have prazipro on hand if this is an effective option. I'm siphoning out what I can now until I can find better options but I don't know how to get them off my betta.

Hard to tell from the pics. I’d guess flukes from the look of it. Would try and siphoned out as much as u can and gravel vac etc. If u dose the prazi it’ll kill the bug but ur water parameters will start to go off. Need to check ur water quality daily.
