Ive been poking around this site for a while now, finally joined today. You all are such a wealth of knowledge and seem to love your betas as much as I love mine.
Well, when I woke up yesterday Fish Face looked different. I realized the mid-section of his tail had gone missing.
My best guess is it was his filter intake from when I had it on the night before to clear out particulates after water change/cleaning (tuned off for bedtime).
He is acting totally normal, all swimmy and such.
I don't see any trauma, the edges of his tail look like all the other edges of his fins. I couldn't find the missing piece.
Could it be something else?
Is there anything I should do if his tail really was ripped off (eeek)?
On the left is an old pic but accurate of his full tail. On the right is from today. Notice the "M" shaped missing portion! Thanks so much!
