Exclamation Somethings up with bettas fins....

As you all know i have recently got done fighting ich and my betta was in pretty bad shape..so now hes still in the hospital cup...yes i'm doing water changes everyday..but now his fins are falling apart and falling to the bottom..could this be fin rot or is he just shedding the dead skin like fins? i put a drop or so of stress coat in there and he still is not eating...

its rather hard to tell hes a darker blue and red but if it helps any actual pieces of his tail fin is like shedding pieces off and as of his front fins its the same except theres no much fin there the tail fin looks like it has a whiteish edge possibly

My fish were in bad shape when I got them. Both tails and fins were in very bad condition. The first day or two after we brought them home pieces were breaking off and lying on the bottom of the bowl. By the end of day 2, there were like little white spikes on the ends of both fins and tails... and now I see that those white spikes were the new tissue... both fish are growing new fin and tails.

Maybe, after the strong ich treatment, your fish is regenerating his tissues? Are you doing anything to the water besides stress coat?

His fins could be torn up if you have a plastic plant in there (especiallyone with spiky leaves/stem!) As you worried, it could be fin rot but we need pictures for that. To upload pictures you can buy this thing I used to use that connects onto and computer in the USB drive. you insert your memory card into that thing (sorry I forgot what it's called) and plug in.

Keep up with water changes, I really don't know what's up. Aquarium salt (if you have it) might help.

If necessary, you could soak his pellets in garlic juices. Garlic stimulates appetite.
