Lyre tail bettas DO exist...they just don't show up often/only one breeder in Japan has a line of them. This is a badly infected injury...very clean water and antibiotics should help.

Oh, really? I never knew that. I just assumed they didn't because it didn't seem very likely.

But yeah. Anti-biotics and she should be looking better soon.

And bettalover, I also don't see how the second one is sick.

i would LOVE to see an actual Lyre tail betta! it sounds pretty. :3

clean, warm water, aquarium salt, Indian Almond Leaf. things i swear by when dealing with fin issues. it's helped all my family's bettas when they had fin issues. and it's what i'm using on my newest boy, who's missing almost all his tail.

It may be fin rot but she might also either be a tail biter or she could have gotten attacked by another fish. Why would fin rot be so symmetrical and only go for the center of her tail?

Thanks, Andi. I feel like it's more descriptive of their character. c:
If you dont think that the second one is badly sick then, this means that the first one isnt badly sick. when i say this, i mean they need extra attention.


P.S i havent been on here in a whiles so excuse me if im sort of late.
