All right!! Keep up the good work! Torn fins can heal like magic when you simply keep their water clean and warm, don't they?

One of my bettas arrived with a section of his dorsal fin missing but it's growing back really fast with frequent gravel vac sessions and warm temp. It's rewarding to see the new growth filling in.

haha thank you,and yes they do heal like magic...i had no idea how fast they could grow back! and i agree with it being rewarding to see the new growth filling in cuz i was realy disapointed when i saw how bad he ripped his fins but now seeing it fill out again is very thrilling! :D

Question. You might know since you have a marble VT. If a marble VT injures his fins enough to where they have to completely regrow, does the marble pattern regrow the exact way it was before it was torn?

Just a guess, but I think so because his colours are genetic. It's sort of like when you cut your hair. It grows back the same colour doesn't it? So perhaps its the same thing for bettas.

I'm really curious if it is that way. I can't imagine something in the little fish's body that goes "When my tail is <insert length here> I have a spot <insert size here> and further down I have..." It just doesn't seem right. o.O
