His fins are on the mend nicely. I am seeing clear "webbing?" in the areas that are damaged. The holes are closing up and I think I am seeing his tail getting longer.

And we have an even bigger nest today!!!

Reuben is doing quite well. The fungus is backing off and he is recovering very well. I enjoy watching him heal up and he is never ending with his bubble nest. I awoke in the middle of the night for some water, looked into the tank with the light from the fridge(his tank is in the kitchen) and I saw him working on his nest.

He was very tuned into his nest. Inspecting it, repairing it, adding to it. It was very fun to watch him work on his nest. I just wish I had enough light to record it without disturbing him.

Wow, Reuben has a lot of time on his fins to make such a giant bubble nest, haha! :D He's a handsome fish, he's an exact replica of my first fish, Freddy, I'm sure Reuben has quite the character. :) Your tank looks great!

Reuben is doing quite well. His fungus is getting under control. And his fins are starting to color up. He is very vicious and active. He's also been quite the busy bee. It amazes me how 1 betta can build such a large nest overnight.

Reuben's gorgeous! Such a funny little guy. He reminds me of my Rubin, who passed about a month ago.

“Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?”- Gandalf, The Hobbit
