So, I got this black dragon HMPK girl a few weeks ago, she had been spawned not long before I got her, so I didn't think much when I saw a chunk missing out of her tail, just figured that whoever she had been paired with but her. I QT'd her for a week and then added her to my sorority/community tank and she was doing well. I woke up 3 days ago and saw that half of her tail was gone! (Pics at end of post) she is still acting and swimming normally, so I don't think it is bothering her, but regaurdless I removed her from the sorority and put her into QT with AQ salt.
It looks absolutely horrible and isn't getting better! Can someone please help me get her fin to improve them quickly?
