Thumbs down Tail Biter -_-

Puck.
I dont think he's stressed or anything.
But when hes beside the rest of his family he flares like crazy; and all the flaring shreds his fins, and when i separate him he bites them -_-
so its either tail damage...or tail damage.
ideas?
He seems very happy though.
and healing tips pls :)

wait... You keep male bettas in the same tank/in view of each other? That may be causing him to bite hit tail due to stress.. Never have male bettas in the same tank. For recovery use .5tsp/gal in warm water(about 80 degrees) to help recovery&feed high protein.

Theyre not in the same tank, the tanks are beside eachother. And he bites his tail when i separate him from the others, not when hes with them.

you said he flares like crazy when he sees them and once you separate him he bites right? yhe bites becasuse he's stressed&worked up about the other betta. Keep a piece of paper or take them away from view of each other. It should stop.

Tanks should never be near each other. > He must be so stressed!
Daily water changes and (I believe) Aquarium salt? Hope he gets better.

All my tanks are beside eachother and no one has a problem with it except for him. The only flaring that i ever see is when stitch flirts with tina xD

I would put him in treatment of treats(lol) Some bettas are more aggressive than others. Move his tank? Switch the items around? Feed him a treat every so often? I hope he gets better.
