Got my mom a betta from big als on wednesday... everything was fine until i realized yesterday his fins were totally like 'shredding' he was a perfect HM with no frays now all his fins are starting to look more crowntail! He hasn't eaten for me yet and spends most of his time floating on top of a plant in the corner. I started treating him with 1 half tblspoon aqua salt yesterday so im hoping that will help.
