a hole my bettas fin D:

So today i noticed that he has a hole in his fin. I don't know how that happened. Can I do something to have it grow back? I haven't noticed any abnormal behaviors. He loves swimming, specially around my live amazon sword plant. I see him resting on top of my silk plant. I know when I turn on my lights in the living room, if he's near the wall of the tank. He does some zigzag dance thing. I don't know what caused the hole but I don't want it to get bigger D:

It'll heal, but you need to identify the cause. Check everything in his tank for sharp edges. If it's not that, he may be tail biting, though probably not since it's only one tiny hole.

It is quite possible he just flared too much and caused a small hole. :) Clean warm water will make it better.

Clean water and time will heal it. This isn't necessary, but stress coat will regrow some of his slime layer and help grow. You could also use aquarium salt, but there is really no need for something that minor.

it's okay dear,
halfmoon's fin are very fragile. a small sharp object or flaring can occur a small hole like that in their fins.
my betta was also have a tiny hole in his fin, but it healed naturally.
just make sure the water in his tank is clear, and warm :)

Everyone pretty much covered it. My HM, Epilepsy has the same thing, his however didn't ever close back up but it hasn't gotten any bigger. He's had it there for about 8 months but I don't notice it anymore.

Now there's another hole that's way bigger D: I removed everything that would have stuff that could poke holes it in. I don't want to throw away my spongebob house D: Think it's this one plant I have. I found some stuff that COULD tear at his fins.
