So, I know my guy probably has a little bit of fin rot, but that's not what this thread is about. Anyway. When I first got my CT, his fins/rays were very clean. But, within a week or so, he freaked out during a water change and banged his fins up pretty good. After that, they were never the same. They curled pretty badly, but it seems like they've only gotten worse over time. I know I have hard water, which is probably (most likely) the reason they curled in the first place.
I'm curious if there's anyway to prevent or even recover from it. I also want to know if the curled rays can affect a betta's quality of life? Because of a minor case of rot, he's currently in quarantine, but I can get pictures of his fins before and after the curling.
