I was just looking at Sequin, and saw that he now had "rays". I know it's tail biting because he has perfectly chomped between each ray, and there was a little spot that wasn't quite bitten off. I also saw that this had happened on the other long fins as well. I don't know what the problem is. There haven't been any changes in his tank, and he has plenty of space. How do I treat this? I have a one gallon tank that I could float in his tank for a hospital tank. How much aquarium salt do I need to use?
just add your normal amount of AQ salt, and do 25% dailey water changes for at least a week. Thats what i was doing. ( my betta sam is a cronic tail bitter) and after the week just go back to your normal routine, my betta sam has his tail fully healed within a couple weeks ( until he chews it again) dont stress too much about it, but those tips should help. :)
Do you have anything in the tank that could be stressing him out? my betta sam was tail biting was caused by my air pump so all i did was move the pump behind the tank and he has stopped since then, so maybe he just is really stressed, if there isnt anything new thats happend to the tank and he has never done this b4, it could just be a habbit he has formed, sadly bettas end up doing it just for w.e reason and we cant really do anything about it. so lets hope its just cause of stress eh.
No, nothing different. I think he may be getting sick. I just noticed he's lost a lot of color around his face. He isn't that old, but I'd bet he was at least a year old when I got him. But I know paling is a sign of illness.
