Tail Splitting?

Hey all, I noticed today that my new betta's tail split. He's a veiltail male and his tail had this sort of crimped look before but now there's just a small split right at the end. Other than that, his fins look fine. They're nice and colored and there's no blackening on the edges. I was just curious as to whether this is normal or not, and if it will grow back. Thanks!

Hi there Alex, yeah the tail will grow back. Clean water and protein foods will help a lot. My VT boy Teeth splits his tail once in awhile.. and I can not figure out what he is doing it on -_-. Check your tank see if there is anything that yours can be catching his fin on and splitting it.

No problem ^_^. If he start developing fin rot or any infection put him in some AQ salt too. BUT Clean Water and protein foods should be all he needs to heal up ^_^.
