Odd, for both of them to be having the same problem, at the same time, if they are tail biting, the fins will grow back, with the IAL and clean water, unless it's from the filter, if that is too strong, are they sharing a tank?

no filter and they are in separate 2 gallon tanks, Sams was the worst but it's getting better.

Can they see each other, idk, something may have had them on edge, if there is a dog nearby..a friend of mine just recently noticed her fishy is tail biting cus of their dog always coming to look at the tank and bark..so she moved it from the spot that the dog could see..now he's fine..

I have 7 males in separate 2 gallon tanks, only 1 doesn't show any fraying. I have a young veiltail in a 1 gallon he looks fine also. All of them seem healthy, eat like horses and have bubble nests.

Nothing is exciting them and the only time they see each other is once a week when I change their water...I give them about 2 minutes of exercise.

Sorry is I missed it but do they have a cave or plants in their tanks something to rest and sleep on and something to hide in when they need to feel secure ? How often are you changing there water ? Some stress coat might help.

Wow, that seems odd, Idk..wish I could advise more, but with clean, water hopefully they will be fine, and no need for salt treatment, if there is no improvement, I would opt for AQ salt..did this happen to all of them around the same time?

Also do their tanks have lights, are they kept off at night?
