I have a betta, he is pretty old and he is in a 2.5 gallon tank. I noticed a few days ago that his scales were kind of pineconed, but he is acting fine otherwise. What do you think it is? I had a betta with pinecone scales a few years ago, but it died shortly after I noticed it. I noticed it a few days ago in this betta and he is still acting fine. What do you think it is?

Usually pineconing is caused by dropsy. What is your temps on the little tank. Try to keep at 80 and keep his water clean.
