I'm happy to report that my little fin nippers anal and caudal fin are growing back!!! I am a little concerned about some darkening around the areas growing back esp on his caudal... but it's been there the whole time and hasn't seemed to have gotten worse. I just took a picture with my phone and am waiting for it to send through.... Jacob you better get better!
I'm hoping he's stopped for the most part... I put in live plants into his tank, I play with him everyday, and I got another male to show him so he's has some flare time for a few mins each day. I am also looking for a tank mate to hopefully reduce any stress he might have gotten after his old tank mate died. :/
