So i got my little betta about two months ago and his fins were in perfect condition when i got him. But lately hes gotten progressively worse fin rot. Hes extreemely active and pigs out like no other fish ive seen but it still worries me. I keep his water crystal clean(30% change every day to get rid of the fin rot) and theres no ammonia.
I recently realized it might be because im constantly walking by his tank...could this stress him our enough to get fin rot?
