Hmmm, that is strange. That's the only thing I have ever heard of that curl fins... My VT has 1 curl in his fin that he has had since I got him... Neither of my other betta's have that. I thought maybe it had curled because of hard water at my LPS. Try an Indian Almond Leave... They say that the chemicals released by the leaves will bond to the minerals in the water thus making them softer. Maybe that will help.

Can you post pics please? I would disagree with the curled fins and hard water. We have a water conditioning system for our home (Kinetico) and I use water from the pre-salination so it is very soft for Florida water and I have a curled fin guy. But his are clamped as well and we are battling a fungus at the moment so that is a different story. But pics to be on the safe side, maybe someone can give a better diagnosis.

How does he normally sleep, on the bottom in a corner?

I see that curley a lot when my VT are recovering from damage, might be worth a shot to put in some pima/mela. Do the wrinkles come completely out at the mirror flaring?

Something is causing uneven tensions in the tips.

Curling fins can sometimes be due to high ammonia levels, hard water, genetics and age....

Every Betta is different in how the fin respond to these issues IME....
