help not sure what is wrong .

I noticed my betta has a split in his tail fin that was not there before and it looks like a small peice might be missing am not sure .I did a quick search and i read a post that said temp fluctuations could make the fish sick,if this is true i might have not knowing made him sick, i did notice the temp change when i would put the ac on in the morning but i did not think it was that much of a difference.Is there anything i can do to get him better,he acts fine eats well just does not look good like when i first got him .

Or you might have a tailbiter!

If he's not exhibiting any other signs of sickness, warm water changed frequently and maybe a bit of stresscoat should help his tail heal up.

If you don't have a heater, get one. Preferably one that lets you set the temperature. The heater is not just to keep the water warm, it's also to help even out temperature swings that can stress fish out.

What Shadyr said! :) Do you have a thermometer in the tank? It does just sound like tailbiting right now, but keep an eye on it.
