my room temperature is always around 25 degrees, and from the research I've done its temperature should be around 21-29 min and max? I only got him today so maybe is he just like 'adjusting' to his new water and temperature? and everyone, don't worry as I do have a heater just with my research I've told you about made me think I didn't need one?

.3. that picture of a tripletail looks like a DT with uneven lobes, and one is split. x-x or a halfmoon someone took scissors to. o-O

i can kinda see what the OP's talking about, but it looks more like his top tail is folded over itself, almost clamped..

Heaters are always good to make sure the temperature stays consistent, especially over night. Is he active? Some fish adjust slowly, some right away. It just depends on the personality of the fish. Just really pay attention to how he's acting, and let us know if he is acting funny.

Well that's good! Just make sure you keep an eye on him. We don't want to make you panic, we just want to make sure your fishie is happy and healthy. :)

Yea, triple tail betta, kind of weird! It's actually really even for 3 tails. But I can't get used to the look.

Your boys tail should heal up fine, just keep his water really clean. Hopefully you should see it growing back together.

Am I the only one not seeing the third split? All I see is a double tail with a huge dorsal. O.o
