I'm thinking it could be tail biting because I may have stressed him out yesterday. I put some new plants (plastic) in his tank, but then later I noticed his tail fin looked ripped. Thinking that it may be the new plants I removed them. I'm sure that wigged him out some, but I want to make sure I'm not under diagnosing him.Housing
