Nova's Tail...?

I got little Nova here following the unexpected demise of Dol. (I'm thinking something got into his water that shouldn't have :'( ) My logic was that Dol would want me to move on, to make another little fishie's life happier. I picked him based on two factors: his bright red coloring, and how attentively he followed (and follows!) my finger when I put it up to his jar. I didn't notice the little "split" in his tail till I got him into the tank. A small part of me thought it could be maybe leftovers from boredom-nipping, but that usually leaves the whole tail in tatters, not just a neat little chunk in the middle.
Crossbreeding maybe?

It's a rip growing back - sometime in the past he must have damaged his tail pretty badly. It's healthy, and colour gain will happen over time. I don't think you need to worry too much about it, but keep an eye out for bloody or black ends that could indicate fin rot. He's a lovely boy, congrats on getting him!

That makes sense, thanks! :) I think the fact that he's so lively, and the way his tail's apparently healing so well, is a tribute to both him and the shop I got him at. Thanks again! :)
