Hello, My betta, Akio, all of a sudden lost a lot of his tail between about 9am July 13th to 4:30 am? today, July 14th. Since I was so busy yesterday I didn't notice till I looked over at his tank next to the couch when I sat down..
Yesterday when he was fed he was perfectly fine and all.
It is a 1.5 Gal tank, with a filter it came with. (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-Aqua...-Pets/10291810)
He is the only betta we have right now.
Have 4 cats X_X ... and Chromia loves to watch him.. and he usually comes out to swim in front of her fanning his fins sometimes... otherwise he ignores her. I also had to fix the tank lid to make sure Chromia and the others couldn't get a paw into the top.
I was making the mistake of leaving the led light on his tank, and that is now being shut off.
His tank is in the living room next to the couch.
I don't know fore sure if it's tail rot or if he's eating his own tail.
Please look at the pictures and see if you can tell for sure. (sorry they aren't the best quality... used my cam. phone... and he's not a photogenic betta..)
Thank you all for your time, even if you don't know for sure.

Also note I have added new shelter for him... that pic is from when I FIRST got him couple months ago... also, the only rocks he has are the smooth ones now... I take out the broken ones.
Akio this morning..
