Update on Neptune's tail recovery

Well 2 weeks ago I said good morning to Neptune and he flaring around his tank from me getting up. Fed him, went to work.

Came home to his tail being shreaded by Im guessing the plant I had in the small 1.5gal tank with him.

Here he was is his original beauty. A very dark blue that pops and is very bright when the flash goes off.


When i got home:


Some more damage went on that night and next day, thats when I realized it was in fact the plant.

Here he is now, slowly recovery but still full of spirit.

Trying to figure out what happened to his lower fin, like it tore in the center.

Water is green because Im still treating him with milt salt and Jungle Fungus just to be safe.







And one with the flash:

He looks alot better. He probably won't get like he was before, but if you keep up the treatment, he'll get pretty darn close. He almost looks like my boy Fishy.

And he shares my betta's name too.
And to top it all... my betta has the exact same problem of his tail fin being torn. Cosmic connection?

From what Synthisis has told me in the past, Neptune flares a lot. I suggested this past weekend putting something over the tank so he doesn't flare so much. I'm thinking that might be why his bottom fin is split a little...

Well I gave him a 10min salt bath then put him into a 100% tank of new water.

Put in half a teaspoon of BettaFix. Going to run that process during this week.
