Hmm...I'm not sure about the contest thing, but with the torn fins, are there any sharp decorations in his tank? Those could tear it.

He has this blue plant with kinda sharp spines on it. I recently took it out of his tank, but it has been too soon to tell if it made a difference.

I either talk to my fish when I'm mad, or I'm mad because I talk to my fish.

Another question:

Do you have to ask a super moderators permission to do a poll?? I don't think I will do one, but it's good info to know.

No, you can just make a poll. It's really easy.

Also, can I use table salt- or even sea salt?- instead of aquariaum salt? I can't go to pet store often because I'm always so busy.........

I just wanted to say something on this question.

A bit of aquarium salt added once in a while to your tank can be benneficial to freshwater tanks, though I've read that some live plants don't agree with that... so check it out if you have a PT.

But epsom salt should only be used when your fish is sick and for short baths, because it can stress the betta out too. Even though epsom baths generaly got 15-20 minutes, my husband's betta laid on his side on the bottom and had a hard time breathing after we put him in the bath for ony 2 minutes, and that was with a little less than the recommended salt to water ratio.

I just wanted to throw that out there... because last time I went to add aquarium salt, I accidentally threw in epsom salt. The salt boxes are identical but one is blue and one is green. I had to take the betta and frog out and clean the entire thing as a result. So if you decide to add a little aquarium salt with tank maintnance, just don't make my mistake and make sure it's actually aquarium salt you're adding, hehe :)
