Both my long tailed double tailed bettas have ratty looking tails. It used to just be pho phan who in which I bought because he had such a BEAUTIFUL! big flowing tail. Started off with small rips, now he looks like he went to a terrible barber who chopped it all up. Now No Nens tails is starting to fray.
-Uncycled evolve 4 tanks (? 3 gallons of swim space)
-I do 40-60% water changes every other day
-stress coat added at each change
-I have been adding a tiny bit of AQ salt the past couple of changes
-They have each have a java fern and an anubias (I just tossed out their mint charley and sprite as it was dying :/)
For a while I was thinking perhaps Pho Phan was just nipping when I wasnt seeing, at night or something.
Now with No Nen starting down the same path im thinking fin rot? There is no black edging on Pho Phan though and No Nen I cant really tell as hes dark blue. Their behaviors seem normal though.
I am hoping these tanks will cycle... but should I be doing more or less in water changes at this point? The tanks have been running for about 2 full weeks.
