Smile Cameron's ever-changing tail.

Being a tail biter, Cameron has always had issues with his fins looking their best. Until recently. His tail looks great. It's a bit short, but if he can hold off just a little longer he'll be right back to his normal, gorgeous self.
Sooo here's my baby. :)



Lookin' right at me.


Can you spot him? I accidentally spooked him by lifting up his lid, and he went straight for his rock.


Determined to get that oddly familiar fish behind the glass...


My angry baby and his "sharpie dot" ...It's not really sharpie but that's what I call that cute little blue spot on his fin.


Not sure how his shadow got over there but he doesn't seem to like it.


Finally, my favorite action shot. Looks like he's ramming the glass. lol



Anyway there ya go.
The tank looks a bit boring at the moment, going to be doing a total overhaul so he has a ton of new plants and all that fun stuff.. he's got a skull, two plants, a hidey hole/slate rock, and a coffee mug. Suits him for the moment.

Here's to hoping he doesn't chomp his tail off! I've been tempted to make one of those little cone collars they put on dogs for him, but that probably wouldn't turn out very well, huh? lol

LOL at the cone collar. Why they think its neccessary for them to nom their own beautiful tails leaves me flabbergasted.

Beautiful betta. :)

Yeah, I don't understand it either. I haven't had any issues since we moved a couple of weeks ago... *knocks on wood*, so I'm hoping that being in the kitchen where he can see the daily goings-on in the house will kind of deter that behavior a bit.

It could be opposite - maybe too much of all the movements is stressing him.

It could be, but with his progress being the way it is I'd doubt it.. He used to be in the bedroom, where there was usually nothing going on. He also used to have a smaller tank than his current one. So I think both of those factors together were stressing him. Since then he's had a tank upgrade as well as a room change, and I haven't seen so much as evidence of a nibble on his tail. SOOOO relieved. lol

Its such a relief when their tail starts to grow back aint it lol. Since I added RCS and a heap of plants to Clark Gable's 4g he's stopped and his tail is nearly fully grown, the little nobbly bits are still missing but in time, fingers crossed he will have a full tail again Glad to hear yours has stopped munching on his also
