HELP please, My male Betta was doing and looking just fine on Wed. I had made a water change and everything tested very good. Yesterday, Thurs. I looked at him in the morning and sections of his tail, top fin and bottom edge of his bottom fin, (sorry I dont recall the tech. names) are shredding, long thin strips and points sticking out with no fin material between them. I did another water test and it was fine, only the pH has been staying around 7.5 but I thought that was ok.
I don't know if he torn his fins on the plant in his tank, or what??? The plant is a low, narrow one, about 3" long and 2" high. The leaves on it are made of silk but the base and short stems are plastic. Could he be swimming between the base stems and tearing his fins? This AM, Friday, his fins look worse.
What should I do???? Would taking the fake plant out help?
