Decoration, water quality, tail nibbling, fin rot. Any of those could be reasons. Stress coat and keep his water clean will help regrow it. Make sure there are no black edges, along with shredding/fraying to rule out rot. A 1 gal is fine (bigger is always better), just keep up with 1 50% and 1 100% water change per week to keep him healthy. =)

Myates is exactly right, just clean water and stresscoat to keep away any infection =) You could also add a little aquarium salt to his tank if you wanted to, just 1 tsp per gallon should be fine. I hope his fins heal nicely! is he the boy in your avatar? he's a beauty!!

Yay! Just use silk plants and that shouldn't happen again with those. Any ornamental deco, just run your fingers over it to make sure nothing is sharp or jagged. Glad he is back to normal! =)
