Very frustrating...and he was so beautiful!
I tried adding plants/removing plants, increasing/decreasing temp, changing food, etc. But he's definitely eating his fins - because I see bits of it in his poop.
He started this after bloating recently, so I'm hoping he calms down again, soon. I completely understand your "he was so beautiful" comment!

Actually, I'm not yet sure if he's a HM or a delta. (The fish, I mean. Not the dog. LOL) I only had him a couple of days when he bloated, so I never got a good picture (or even a look) at him when he was flaring.
I got him from Petsmart, and I've noticed that a lot of what they sell as 'HM' is actually a delta. Maybe someday, he'll allow his fins to grow back, and I'll be able to get a picture (or twenty) of him..... Silly fish. LOL
