How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Black tips on his blue fins
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Not at all
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Today when I took a flashlight to check how everyone was doing in there (my room is kind of dark since the ceiling light has been burnt out and we can't seem to get the cover off to change it)
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? No
Does your fish have any history of being ill? No
How old is your fish (approximately)? 1 year, +/- a few months
Other: He had recently caught his tail on something, ripping a part of it off. I noticed regrowth, but it's black, not blue. Is this normal? Or is it infected?
I can post a picture of him before his fins were ripped, but because of the lack of lighting in my room, I can't take another one without blinding him with the flash.
