Fin biting or tears?

Pudge has three pieces of his caudal missing at the edge, and I'm 100% sure they are not from past tears.

However, I'm not sure if they're from the grass decor (which he barely swims through), or fin biting. Buddha has similar chunks missing, but that's because of his past fin rot...

I haven't seen Pudge biting himself and that's whats making me think its the decor, but I'm not too sure...

Does it look like a CT fin mark? Or crescent shaped? Tears are just fins sliced through.

A CT fin mark...?

And they're triangle shaped...

Considering he's a Super, he does have long fins, but I don't think they're long enough for him to bite them..

Like the bite mark looks like a CT's fins. Triangle shaped? He bit, I'm sure. All Bettas can bite their fins, even PKs.

oh, gotcha.

The attached pic has a circle around the area where two of the triangles are.

And I'm hoping he stops otherwise his fins will look bad >:(

Yep, that's biting. You don't have to treat as he'll bite, too. D: Just clean water so no infections.
