So I have three boys in a divided 10 gallon tank. I've had 2 of those boys since August and the other once since November when I put them in their big tank. My veil tail has been tail biting since around December and as soon as it gets solid again he'll bite it again. Also his fins are getting really curled and have been that way for a while...there's pictures in my other thread here.
I'm just getting so frustrated that nothing is working. I tried putting aquarium salt in for the first time on Monday when I changed the water.
