i am really confused on how to spot the difference between torn fin and fin rot, i was wondering if any one could post a good picture of a betta with fin rot. he made a bubble nest over the weekend so i wouldnt think it is fin rot, i just took out the artificial plant i had in because i figured its kinda spiny the plastic might be tearing his fins. this the plant i had http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2752304
This is a wonderful reference site for different betta diseases and how to spot them along with some okay recommendation on treating them. Scroll down the page, the second disease listed is fin rot and shows a good reference picture.
thanks a lot guys, after seeing that picture i am pretty confident that it is not fin rot just a stupid choice of plant on my part that tore his tail, my friend gave me a 10 G tank yesterday with heater filter and better plants. i think im going to put him in there within the week and maybe get 3 cories aswell
im sure if i go to big al's they will have a larger selection to choose from then petsmart, i've got to compair prices as well, as i just finished school and am looking for a new full time job i have a limited budget
