Smile Tail is growing back nicely!

Our little tail biter is finally growing back his beautiful Veiltail !!
In my other posts you can see that he was probably (?) biting his tail, which quickly let to fin rot. We were able to fight that special kind of fin rot with Maracyn I medicine (and daily 100% water changes and aquarium salt), fortunately. But Tiepolo needed some time to calm down and stop biting his tail. We continued to keeping him in a hospital tank and continued the 100% water changes. Hopefully his tail will stay long now!
Here's a photo from the time he was tail biting:



And here are new photos (he's still in hospital tank) with his tail growing back now:

Looking good! I love how their tails grow back kind of wavy (: Churro's tips of his fins are translucent and wavy, it looks cool (:
You're doing a good job! Keep it up!

wow, i wish i knew how to deal with tail biting... Mine just started this week and so we are just treating him with salt for now.

If it turns into fin rot i have meds on standby from when we got him from the petstore...
