Can you describe the problem he's having a little more? You just wrote "Fins?" but that doesn't really tell us what's wrong with them.

If you fill out the form below, it will give us more information. Answer what you can, and either leave everything else blank or put "NA."

Also, a picture would be really helpful so we could see what's going on.

not heated
no filter

I have not tested Water Parameters
Fins are tearing a little
Had a black trim when I bought him and thats disapearing
No behaviour changes just being overly protective of his bubblenest and I have NOT bred him
I noticed the symptoms last night when I was giving him his food
I have started treating him with Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Betta Fix. Half teaspoon a day for a gallon bowl

And I would say almost fully grown, looks like he is getting bigger.
Also has three plastic plants that i trimmed so they wouldnt hang out of the water
