My betta fish's fins are having some definite issues. When I first got him which was about a month and a half ago it looked like he was recovering from fin rot. Now his fins are tattered and discolored at the ends. Some are "curly" on the end and his caudal fin just has a huge chunk out of it. There is no blackness on the tips of the fins which throws me off... I've never witnessed him tail biting either. I'm sorry I can't get any pictures right now. He started to dart around the tank and have a panic attack when I put the camera up to the glass (or acrylic I should say).
