I've had these fish for about four months now and I've very recently noticed some major damage to their fins. Here are some pictures of what they currently look like.
And here are some pictures of what they looked like the day after I bought them.
I'm not sure if this is ammonia poisoning or fin rot since I don't really know how to identify either so for now, I've just moved them into some infirmary bowls for the time being. Current pH is 7.2, I usually change the water about every 10 days, they eat two Betta-Bio Gold pellets in the morning and afternoon, live alone, and aside from the damage to their fins, have been as active as ever. In their old bowls, I used to have some elodea but I took it out shortly after when I noticed that the stems had started to brown.
I have noticed some very small brownish areas on my red/lav HM's tail but I haven't seen anything similar on the steel blue HM although his tail loss is much more extensive.
