Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? First bettas tail mysteriously got ripped. More rippings and shreddings followed. The second betta's tail got ripped a few days after the first betta. They both have bloody tips but no black. Even their dorsal fins are partly ripped.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Since I've moved them into a divided tank, they've constantly been flaring at eachother. I have put plants there to try to block their view.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? About a week ago.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? No, I thought if their fins didn't heal up within a few days I would QT them with AQ Salt since I've seen white regrowth (hopefully not fungle.)
Does your fish have any history of being ill? No.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I've had them for about 6 months. They have been solitary since a week ago. I first put them in a 5-5 1/2 gallon divided them quickly upgraded to a 10.
Sorry for posting here...AGAIN. Complete noob. I thought they were trying to bite eachother's tails and faces since they keep on knocking the ornaments out of the way to see eachother on the other side. I'm just getting a little worried. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
