4) Have you ever noticed him biting his tail
I've actually been noticing it for a while, but never thought anything of it. Maybe a couple months? It hasn't gotten any worse. His tips aren't fuzzy looking, they are just stringy and frayed I've never seen him bite at his fins, he always seems very energetic and happy. Bubble nests and he's very active. That's why I never thought about it before, until reading some posts from people who have very sick fish and I don't want him to get like that.
Thanks for any advice you can give! I appreciate it!
