yes some fish do stress themselves but i think that helps cause fin rot.

Hey there,

Your water change routine sounds fine so it should not be dirty water causing the fin rot. Stress compromises your bettas immune system and puts them at risk of all sorts of illnesses including fin rot so to answer your question yes stress has the potential to cause fin rot.

Mardels maracyn-two is supposed to be one of the best fin rot medications available, I would give that a go.
