Wow, he looks JUST like my Hermes...they could be twins! Are you using aquarium salt to heal his fins? What size tank is he in? What's the temperature? Is the tank by a window?

The tank is not by a window, idk what the tank size is. It is smaller than most because I tried a critter keeper and he hated it. i don't have a heater but all my fish seem fine without one and I'm not using aquarium salt

Yeah, sorry for the delay. I used Crayola washable window markers, just because I wasn't sure if Expo would work. Try it, the worst that could happen is you don't see anything! Also, I found that my filter was too strong and blowing him over, and he was biting his tail because of that. I don't know if you have a filter or whatnot, but my fishie is definitely picky.

Yep. Looks like a biter!!!

Once they start, they don't usually stop biting. It's awful, but I haven't figured anything out to fix it. You could get some IAL. That might help and it would make his water darker to help keep him calm.

Indian almond leaves. They release good, natural, "medicine" for the fish.

You can get them off ebay for about 6 bucks including shipping.

Are the IAL really leaves or are they extracts? I saw some "leaves" (big brown ones) @ my local pet shop and was embarrassed to ask what they were. IF they really are leaves....do u just kind of let them float on the top? Im confused....again! LOL

I've never seen almond leaves in a pet shop, but I buy them from my breeder. I get them for twenty cents each but I don't live in the U.S.... is there a breeder near you taht has some in stock? The really do help, I have a tail-biter and his fins are almost full :D
I just let mine float on top, they are actual leaves yes lol. If they're curled, my boys use them as hammocks and beds. They're good for them and the bettas like them, too!
