Fin-biting, err...

Well it turns out my new pastel dalmation VT who I thought had finrot in the past is a fin-biter! AHHH! When I bought him I noticed the new growth and assumed it had been finrot. Nope. The other day I saw him swimming in circles and as of today he's munched on both his caudral and dorsal. I'm through with long finned bettas!

On a positive note my new HMPK "Fable" is safe in the US & chill'n with Jennifer V. until Thursday. He'll be here sometime on Friday .

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

it's so frustrating
my tailbiter will stop just long enough that I can see some new growth, then chomp chomp chomp, he destroys it again.

Akira stopped at his rays and anal fin. He's got two missing rays from his anal fin and only has six spikey rays. He looks like a CTPK.....T-T Oh Aki you derp.

Dante was my chronic tail biter. he never let his tail grow all the way back.

now, Ichi's taken a few chomps of his tail. i do hope he lets it grow back. he has such a pretty tail.
