Fin-biting, err...

Well it turns out my new pastel dalmation VT who I thought had finrot in the past is a fin-biter! AHHH! When I bought him I noticed the new growth and assumed it had been finrot. Nope. The other day I saw him swimming in circles and as of today he's munched on both his caudral and dorsal. I'm through with long finned bettas!

On a positive note my new HMPK "Fable" is safe in the US & chill'n with Jennifer V. until Thursday. He'll be here sometime on Friday .

it's so frustrating
my tailbiter will stop just long enough that I can see some new growth, then chomp chomp chomp, he destroys it again.

Akira stopped at his rays and anal fin. He's got two missing rays from his anal fin and only has six spikey rays. He looks like a CTPK.....T-T Oh Aki you derp.

omg, I think is when you get drunk by sleepiness rather than alcohol..

I was like "Dude, what if they are trying to wax themselves"... I think I need to rest. >_>

Dante was my chronic tail biter. he never let his tail grow all the way back.

now, Ichi's taken a few chomps of his tail. i do hope he lets it grow back. he has such a pretty tail.
