Beautiful! It's interesting for me to go back and see the first pics of Mags in here. Her fins haven't grown back very much at all and she seems to be missing some of her pectoral fins now. She couldn't possibly be eating them, could she? She has no tank mates or sharp edges anywhere in the tank.

I think that is highly unlikely. If there is as you say no sharp edges anywhere or anywhere that she could have gotten hurt, then I would say to check for FinRot or just watch her closely, but I don't think that bettas could reach their pectoral fins. (Unless they are "Big Eared" or "Dumbo Eared")

Ex:





As you can see in the pictures the "dumbo" gene is just a gene that extends the pectorals and makes them larger.

These pictures are owned by Bettawolf19. I hope they dont mind me using them.

Wow! That's one kind I have't seen before-awesome! I rescued her over 2 weeks ago with SEVERE fin rot and we've already done the AQ salt treatment for 10 days. She swims a little funny, but it doesn't seem to bother her much. She never rubs against anything in the tank and nothing sharp. I hope she regrows some of her fins. Thanks for the feedback and sharing the photos!

@SummerOj: Wow he is really pretty and IMO the Asymmetric plakats or Halfmoon Plakats are my favorite. The dragon scaling also makes it all the more better

Could you get a flaring picture of him and maybe one without flash as well?

They're both gorgeous! The only thing is now my boy was at petco for like over a month before I bought him, and his fins went from gorgeous to clamped and melting. :(
