Another update just changed Fender's water today and the wrap looking thing came off. Im hoping that his fin regrows but if not i guess it ok as long as he is healthy.

CTs fins are very fickle. we had about four total, out of all our bettas, and only ONE has good fins, but even his are crinkled a bit. my Zidane's curled up till you couldn't even tell he was a CT, my brother's rays melted off till they looked stringy and funky, my mom's are tattered-lookin, and only my King Steve has decent rays(they're quite beautiful, actually!). could you take a sample of his water and test it, either yourself with a test kit or at a pet store? that may help figure out whats' going on with them. :3

Even with "washing" (I hope you aren't using soap!) his decor, you should still be changing the water twice weekly just to keep it clean for him. If you are worried about his fins, giving him sunlight and changing it even more frequently will help. High protein diets and clean water are the best things for fins, along with aq salt if they are damaged.

Of course not,when i wash his gravel and decor i change the water with it I run warm water through the gravel and wiper the plant and statue with a rag. Also what would a high protein diet consist of and how much aq salt am i supposed to put in at a time and how often?
