Well, it looks like fin rot or maybe she's ripping her fins.

She could have been constipated, I will start feeding her less.

As for the fins, don't worry about it, she got into a fight with a betta male, apparently they found a loophole in the previous divided tank setup. I set up my tank again and they are great. Her fins already healed up nicely, his, however took more damage but he is recovering nicely too. He resembles a crown-tail, even though he is a veil-tail now with his fins shredded.

What I wanted to say is that my fish eats, eats, eats. I feed her, she eats it all, then goes to the bottom to nip on the remains...



The picture above was taken a moment ago, as you can see, she looks great, but she still goes down and nips on the remains from time to time.

P.S. I know about the right info that I should provide but this has nothing to do with the setup.

If you wondered how he looks... :)



He looks dark here because of the lighting...

Is that red stuff at the bottom of her tank food? If so, then you are really over feeding her. She only needs 3-4 pieces twice a day. I feed one piece at a time so none sink.

The red stuff is gravel! :D This is their new setup, so hopefully, she won't be finding much of leftovers with this gravel and siphon vacuuming. I feed one at a time too, also, whatever falls down gets eaten by 6 neon tetras.
