my tank is a 1.5 gallon, my tank is about air temp which is about 82 degrease, i dont have a filter, i do have an air stone, my tank is not heated, she lives by her self, i feed her betta fish pellets, i feed her once daily and i give her about 5-7 pellets because they are the micro pellets, i change her water 100% once every week, i add aquarium salt each time i do a change, I've had my water tested at petco by a specialist and they said that my water was perfectly clean and healthy for fish, her fin has changed from a small bite to what it looks like in the picture, her behavior has not changed she is still a happy fish, i have noticed it ever since her fin got bit while breeding which was somewhere in late august-early September, i heard that feeding her brine shrimp would help so i tried that, but it didn't help, she does not have a history of being ill but she has gotten her fin shredded before and i gave her some brine shrimp and it healed in two days. so i dont know if her fin is not healing because i didnt give her brine shrimp right away like i did the other times or if i need to do something else, and she is about mabey 6-10 months old.
