Question Please help!

Ok. Here is a pic of my tank. The problem is the pink plant. It is plastic. (Not my best idea.) Yhe only thing is that theres never been a problem with it. Now i want to take it out without cleaning the tank.(I just cleaned it saturday) I want to replace it with something else but my friend is worried with the P/H balance.(Since you have to wash it with tap water.) Can I do It? Please Help!

Don't worry about it.. take the plant out and put the new (rinsed) one in. Don't worry about the pH. Plus I've never heard of adding a plant to mess up the water chemistry.

Oh yeah, He has already torn a fin on it.
The end of his tale: a pale - looking red. Almost white.

Thanks! Im washing off his rock right now...

One little plant definitely won't do anything, don't worry!

And bloo, my red betta has that pale white(yet slightly reddish) lining ALL around his end-tail. It's not healing nor is it infected with fin rot or anything - it's his natural lining. I find it odd, but it's been like that for about 3 months straight. Nothing changed. However, without a picture, we may be talking about different things??

Yeah its the best i could do. Taking Pics of bettas is hard! But it is probably not anything bad...
See if you can see this. Sorry if you cant. Pic editing is hard.

Ohhhhh, so like white "spots" on his tail? He probably ripped his tail a little bit, with pin-sized holes (or circular), and the white "spots" you see are him healing the fin. If I got it right, lol.
