Well, I think my Betta, Pepper, might be a chronic tail-biter. I came home from the gym and found his tail in shreds. The only reason I can think of why he would do this again is that his tail might be too heavy, which is what I think he did the first time because if grew back in a fair amount of time. Another reason I think is that I just put him in a 14gal divided tank with my other Betta, Noche. But since this has happened before I think he just thinks his tail is too heavy. He is acting normally and eating fine.
Both Bettas can still see each other, I've tried to cover with fake plant and keep the tank dark but they still find each other and start flaring. Pepper just swims away when he's bored and plays with his reflection instead.
Anyways, I don't think I will treat with salt quite yet. I posted a thread earlier about him tearing his tail and was just told if the water params stay good there should be no infection. The next 50% water change is on Saturday and the tests from today showed:
Another reason I don't want to treat with salt is that he is still adjusting to his new home and I rather not stress him out more. I just put him and Noche in about 3 days ago.
Anyways I was just wondering if anyone else has delt with a Betta that tail bites and what you do for treatment. I would like some feedback on what I am doing, thanks!
