Question Can you recognize any dieseases on my sisters Betta?

I just brought him from his .5 gallon bowl to his 1.5 gallon tank. HEre are some pics of him now:










Does anyone see any problems with him? We're pretty sure his fins became spiky because he used to have a plastic plant with pointy tips BTW (the plant in the pictures is silk, though)

He is very active and eats like a pig. There might not be anything wrong with him but I'm just making sure since he spent a few months in a .5 gallon blowl with weekly water changes SOMETIMES unless my sister forgot.

It appears to be a crowntail betta. They have the appearence of "verticaly shredded fins".

I couldn't tell anything wrong from the pictures. I am not sure what part you wanted us to focus on.

BTW is that tank filtered? If it is not, than you need to be doing 100% water changes every other day. If that is forgotten, it could result in a serious fungal infection or finrot.

Hope this helps!

Actually he's not a crowntail, he's a veiltail. Like I said above, I thing he shredded his fins on a plastic plant. When we first got him his fins were smooth, not pointed. Also, another way to tell is his "Paddling" fins or whatever they're called are round.

I'll be sure to remind her to do constant water changes.

Well I didn't see the part about the veiltail betta (unless you are refering to your sig). It certainly looks like a crowntail from the pictures.

Is there any way that you can upload more pics. Try to get a side profile of the fish.

I'll try. I see the confusion lol it's my sisters betta! Notice his spiky fins that make him look like a crowntail? Well, when we first bought him they weren't spiky. He was full grown by that age, so they didn't develope (if that's even possible) No, when we got him his fins were smooth at the edges, not spiky. That's why I think his fins turned spiky from a plant. And the store we bought him from has a sign near the pet section that states: We do not supply crowntails. With a picture of a Betta /=

Since I've said that that Betta's my sisters, me and her have different Bettas, hers is blackish bluish (as shown in picture) and mine is purple.

Hope that cleared up some confusion!

I can't tell anything from the picture except that the fins are spiked. I have never heard of something like that. Well, Tony's fins got torn vertically awhile back, but that was fin nipping. Your sister's betta is alone right?

That is so strange, though. From the pictures, it looks exactly like my sister's betta. Except hers is a crowntail.

So does it look sick? Anything other than the torn fins? The torn fins might be from high ammonia levels. Does her betta have a history of being sick?
