I woke up this morning and one of my bettas had a cut on his tail and I thought he just cut himself on the plant, but then after breakfast HALF HIS TAIL IS GONE!
He has holes and cuts every where and I dont know what to do D:
And i dont know what the gray dot on his head is and i dont know if its relevent to what he has but please help me :(
well, if he is bitting his fins - he may be doing it because the crayfish is stressing him out, or he is bored or just because he can. I have a few that bite and I have never actually seen them do it either.
Here is a pic of possibly my "best" tail bitter. He was labled a delta but I think he was actually a HM. I moved his tank and he stopped bitting.
He didnt like being a HM either. Tried him in everything from a 1G up to a 10G and was a bitter till the day he died.
In this his fins are worse but there is new growth at the very ends
