i check out my bettas every day, though ill admit houdini gets less attention. today i went to go take a couple pics of their tanks (just got the other into his 5 gallon. wanted pictures of both my 5'ers)
he has a lot of back fin missing!!
not like most, but way too much for it have not to happened quickly.
he doesnt often open them that much. when i got him he had them all clamped up. he started opening them up very quickly, but relatively. i tried to look at old pictures to see if maybe i just didnt notice how much is gone. ill post a now and then photo for you to see how much is just all of a sudden gone.
but. it doesnt have any darkness to it or like how i was told fin rot looks. but i dont think him or the ghost shrimp could tear him up that fast. im just baffled by what happened and what to do next... ive never had to deal with this before
i would feel really awful if i took him home in his dirty little cup only to make life worse for him :(
please help me. i really just dont know what my next step is
shortly after i got him and he started to get healthy
now as of today
what did i do wrong? how do i fix it? he seems to be in great health and spirits, but this is not right :(
i have a 2 gallon completely empty that he was in, but i have a heater and filter for it. i have a 3 gallon with gravel and dirty water still because baby blue just upgraded.
right now his tank mates are 1 mystery snail and there should be 4 ghost shrimp assuming he hasnt munched any
((i do work tonight, and i -have- to go to my moms and do laundry))
please help quickly. it would be awful for him to lose any more fin than ive already let happen :(
