How do you tell when he's stressed?

he is tail biting and sometimes he will just look lifeless. also what you could do for the tail to grow back is you could put aquarium salt and also try putting a dark shirt over his tank so he can calm down a little.:) In my opinion and experience its allways worked and is pretty successful.

He doesn't look too stressed IMO. And its impossible to tell from that picture whether he actually does bite his tail or whether he has some fin rot. Tail biting is not always indicative of stress, many people believe it also has genetic roots in which case no amount of care will make him stop.

I have a soft spot for tail biters. They are so infuriating yet you just gotta love them. I have 3 right now.
