Also try to see if it might be biting. You can sometimes catch them in the act if they're doing these quick spins in a circle. Gyarados doesn't tend to do it while I'm watching so you might have to try from afar.

I just took the log out - he's gonna miss it, but I didn't pay $30 for that beautiful tail to get all ragged

Well, let's hope it doesn't get torn!! If anything find a big cave with smooth insides. I have a ship that Georgie fits in without getting torn up.

A month into things, his tail is completely shredded. There is barely anything on his side of the tank to get caught on... The water parameters are unchanged... Honestly he's starting to look like a crowntail .

I'm very sorry to hear about your bettas tail. I actually had the same thing happen to me with my old white delta male. I couldn't understand why his tail fin just got progressively more shredded..There was nothing to get caught on. Just silk plants, and he had plenty of room to swim.

I wish I could help more, but I will be following your thread..I want to find out what might cause such a thing, and what can be done to stop it in case I get a fish where it happens again..

I need people's help here, the rot is getting really, really bad. Fish shows no other sign of sickness. My results are below - if its not ammonia or nitrate/nitrite, where else should I be looking? This was a beautiful delta a month ago, now you would never know.

Ammonia 0
nitrate 10
nitrite 0
hardness 100
alk 40
ph 6.5

I considered that BUT at the pet shop he was in this tiny 1/2 gallon setup. and he was beautiful.. i dont know how he can go from worse conditions to better (5 gallons, heated, filtered) and deteriorate instantly.
