How old is your fish (approximately)? Brand new fish two days since he's been here. He looks younger than a year I have no clue best guess 5 months. Don't know his history. He came as the feistiest (word?) betta I've ever seen. He's calmed down some as far as his obsession with being aggressive to his reflection but lights on and off he's constantly moving/dancing alot. So about half the time he flares at himself fins and chasing (no gills all puffed out) and the other half he swims fast all over. Seems happy not afraid. The problem is he came with the tiny-est hole in his tail. Not a chunk or ragged like some tail biters look to be but a little hole in the middle. Now there is a bigger hole on the dorsal? top fin that wasn't there when I got him. Is he too aggressive? Too active? My fear is he" over stressed and flaring his fins out too big and they rip? I don't know at all? help
