Hornwort?

Does anyone have any problems with Hornwort snagging their betta's fins? Mine feels a little prickly. Sometimes I can see Bettasaurus almost...struggling..to get through it like he's getting stuck in it. He's got such ridiculous finnage though, it's not surprising.
I'm thinking about taking it out.

Hornwort did a number on one of my boy's fins... he was also having a problem with brittle fins at the time because of petsmart so.. up to you, personally, I prefer anacharis

Yeah Benzema's scales were falling off with the hornwort but that is because I had way too much of it in there... once I removed some it was better

I have anacharis in there and he LOVES it. I'm about to go take that hornwort out though. I'm treating him for mild fin rot right now & his fins are just ragged. I'm sure the hornwort isn't helping.
