eating fins?

i'm pretty sure my boy jim is eating the "web" part of his top and bottom fins.. like they're starting to look like crowntail fins to an extent.. how do you keep a betta from doing this and how can you heal the damaged fins? salt? stress coat?

Yes mine is doing the exact thing too!!!

Try lessening the amount of light he recives or at least the brightness. Or mine bites because hi is board. Try adding something in the tank to keep him distracted and remember to change it every few days so he doesn't get bored.



Consider those betta logs but you do need a 2.5 gallon at least for them.

Well i am still trying to get him something to distract him for a while. I was thinking something that bubbles or floats. I tried putting a bouncy ball in for him to push around, to no avail....

I think mine is bored
