Tailbiting or finrot?

Does this look like tailbiting? I know these aren't the greatest pics in the world. Name:  015.jpg

To me it looks like tailbiting but i could be wrong. If it is tailbiting try adding objects round the outside of the tank this why he can observe them .

I'm thinking tailbiting, too but want everyone's opinions. It's just been this way since I added a filter to the tank.

Oh, one of my betta's has chomped his crowntail up and looks just like yours. Might as well try adjusting your filter flow to see if it helps. I never did figure out what my betta's problem was, but his rays are slowly starting to grow back. I hope your betta heals up quickly!

Thanks. I might just take the filter out and put it in someone else's tank.

It looks like tail biting that has turned into a small case of fin rot. Unless he had a full tail and it started to get the dark color around the edges and it slowly got to where it is now. But that is a good size chunk missing, to me it looks like he took a bite or 2 out of his tail and now it's in the early stages of fin rot. Keep him in good water and add some aquarium salt, cuntinue to do regular water changes to keep him in fresh water..

Your welcome, I wasn't thinking.. I don't know what you have in your aquarium, filter decor.. He could of cut his tail on one of theses things and then got a little fin rot going on..
