Fin Repair

I'm not sure if anyone remembers my post about Snapper, the halfmoon I bought with unknown caused fin damage. I figured I'd give an update on his recovery since his salt treatment has ended and he's been out of QT for over a week (about). I gotta say that when I first saw him at the LFS with the damage he seemed kinda sad and scared, but he is 100% more active and a happy little guy. He is one amazingly happy Betta! ANYWAY here are before and after pics:

Before:



After:

Wow, he's definitely getting some new growth, Snapper looks great. How long has it been? I have a doubletail I got who is missing part of one tail and all of the other and I'm wondering how long it will take for it to grow back. I can't tell because it's a perfectly clear tail (all white betta).

The before pic was taken right when I got him which was 6-29-11 so about 3 weeks for that much regrowth. That includes a 10day salt treatment and have been double dosing with API Stress Coat water conditioner.

Okay, my guy has a ways to go, I got him last week. Snapper really does look great. I bet you can't wait for him to get that halfmoon all grown.

Snapper looks great! I am amazed that just salt,clean water, and some TLC can do such amazing things.

I'm 100% sure it wasn't caused by ammonia. He was in a nice size tank with a few guppies and the lady at the fish store cleans it regularily. It's gotta be one of two things: Either he got stressed and bit it off or one of his tank mates did it. Either way he's in my care now and very happy. :)

I'd go with the guppies biting it off. If there aren't enough guppies they aren't distracted enough by each other and go off to pick on other fish.
