Hey guys, went to petco today and fell in love with another Betta.
One problem: He's bitten off his caudal fin.
I think fin rot is setting in, but I'm not sure. Can you verify this for me? He also has some trouble swimming. Other than these things, he looks healthy. I had enough self-restraint to hold off until I know how to help him. Here are the pics:
I fully intend to buy him, I don't think I'll be able to sleep until I do. If he does have fin rot, is it too far along to simply use stress coat? For his hospital tank setup, I'll include a Betta hammock for easy resting, a heater (of course), and maybe a low-ish water level? Is there anything else I should know, or am I good?
Thank you so very much,
