is he eatingg his fins !?



I was in the process of changingg his water so he was a bit freaked out and runningg around...

Hatchet's tail fin thingyy looks like its disappearing !! I don't know what is goingg on ... is he biting it? Is it rotting? It doesn't reallyy look discolored or anything... I put him in a bigger tank for just in case if he is stressed and I put Monster in the smaller tank because he is still a babyy so the smaller tank fits him better anyways...

But I am so worried...

Is there a home remedy for stress relief on a fish that I can do? Or medicines?

Tail Biting. :( Caused by stress, boredom, and heavy finnage. Tank light? Decorations? Might just be the water change. As long as the water is kept clean, don't worry.

He could just be tail biting.
Being stressed or bored can lead to that. Try to re arrange the tank decor to help relieve boredom.

As for the treatment, just use clean water and high protein foods :3

It could also be an injury on an item, but it looks more like tailbiting

I put him in a bigger tank (Monster is severely upset about losing his 2.5 gallon tank and being in a small 1.5 lol..) and it has at least 2 plastic tank plants and I am goingg to go and cash my check as soon as I can to go and get more tank decorations anyways, and another tank... I just recentlyy had a friend give me a plant for the tank he was previously in, before he had nothing... but hopefullyy switchingg will make it better ...
