Angry Wish I could ground Yashamaru!

OH! I could just . . . . . >.<!

First, it was my fault, he tore up his fins on his plant cause he HAD to be inside it at all times, so I took it out, and I was planning on getting him a real plant this weekend (it will probably die because I am the grim reaper of plants) then I look at him today. Big ol' rip that is new! In is beautiful fins! Made me want to cry. How do you rip your fin on a round tank decoration?!

Bet he was jumping round on it last night instead of being in bed like hes 'sposed to be! Arg, I hope he is pleased with himself.

Anyone else thinking about grounding their bettas?

Pardon me for not know what this means guys..but just exactly what are ripped fins? Will I see this, if it happens, where does it happen the most? in the back, or the top (dorsal) fin? I ask because I have never noticed the things I see people talk about..so I am hoping I am not overlooking things..??

it's just a split in the tail. i'll try to find a pic of my late Cup, who used to blow his fins alot by over flaring, for you to show you. :3

Edit: okay! this is an old pic, and not the best, but it shows what i mean. :V

Cup was NOT a tail biter. any imperfections you see are rips and blown fins. the clearish on the inside is healing fins, but only on his tail. :V

@lelei It was a basic plastic plant from Petco, I wanted to switch to live, but I am not kidding about me being the plant grim reaper.
