She does not have a filter in her tank. Also she never had fin rot. Im not sure if it showed up over night. All I know is that I saw it like this today.

Hi Rainbows. How is her behavior otherwise? Is she eating and acting normally?

Some wear and tear is to be expected on the fins, no matter what kind of fish. She could be biting just a bit (yes, even females can fin bite) but there's also a possibility she is missing in some nutrients needed to keep her fins strong so they are deteriorating on her own. Try switching to a different brand of food that is high in nutrients, such as Omega One or New Life Spectrum. Alternating her pellets with frozen foods such as frozen bloodworms or brine shrimp can also help supply some vitamins and minerals as well, since most frozen foods are gut packed and enriched before freezing.

Finally, another possibility is getting a product called Boyd's Freshwater VitaChem. This is a supplement that you add into the water with each water change and you can also soak food in it.

If she's not acting "off," then it's most likely nothing to worry about too much. :)

She is eating and acting perfectly normal, but is she is flaring at mostly everything which she never does But other than that she is eating perfectly fine and she is swimming and everything.

It could be she's just upset by Dreamless being in a hospital tank or being upset. Or maybe she has spring fever?
