Hello Everyone! This site is really helpful :3 So we recently got a betta 3 days ago( Crimson, our first pet!), and we're trying really hard to take care of him. But today I've noticed that his fins are starting to ..spread apart. It feels like its getting worse and theres more frays :/..I'm not sure if it is fin rot, since some websites say there should be black edges but there aren't any. Just his fins spreading apart.. Can you guys check? If so, should I get aq. salt or something? Just in case, since I'm worried for him! Dx
