8[ Unles it was PROVEN to me that it didn't hurt them and that it was an EXTREMELY effective, like the best out there, treatment I'd never do it.

It's
A) Questionable
B) Risky
C) Disturbing. I wouldn't be able to do it.

that's my take on it.

If someone told me it was the only way I'd do it though. If it meant saving the fish. But that's it!

Mr. Vapm I'd love to see that Hydrogen peroxide trick! That's some great knowledge! =]

BTW BettaHeart and Turtle10 the boys in your avis are STUNNING! D: <3

I doubt it really hurts that much. The hydrogen peroxide Mr.Vampire was talking about was where you take the fish out of water and rub hydrogen peroxide VERY carefully on the fish's tail, to get rid of the disease.

I put it in the same basket as docking dogs tails and ears etc... unless it is absolutely needed I would not do it. Need a cure... ask OFL for some advice. She will give the recipe for a garlic based, green tea, iodine infused, peroxide fermented soup that will have your betta feeling better in no time at all lol

(Disclaimer) the suggested remedy is in fact a joke and I do not suggest trying to brew this evil concoction... ask OFL for the real deal :)

How would you even handle the betta long enough to trim their fins?

It seems interesting, but I would never do it because of the way some people use scissors to cut their dog's ears into triangles to make them look 'cool'.

I don't know. I can see where they're comming from, but personally I wouldn't want to risk it. What if he wiggles and I end up cutting him in two?

aquaruim salt, and clean, warm water is ALL you need to treat fin rot, ime. :/ the ONLY time i'd EVER even THINK about cutting a betta's tail, is if it's a HM with SUPER FINNAGE, and he's literally having trouble swimming. :/ even then, i'd debate.
