I've posted about my new betta Alucard down in the photo section and looking at the photos from yesterday and then at him today I noticed his fins seem to have gotten more 'tattered' and I wondered if he has fin rot.
I discounted it entirely at first because the chunk missing from his caudal fin has got what I assumed to be clear regrowth forming and otherwise his fins were decent, but the tiny pinpoint holes in his other fins are now a bit bigger....could it be from swimming and flaring more than he could in the cup?
I should also note that there are no black or darkened bit on his fins and no curling either.
Tank is 5g, heated to 80○F, with an air stone, smooth stones, live plants and one piece of wood with fresh water added daily.
I have AQ salt and general tank meds (melafix pimafix) but I don't want to jump the gun and treat if I don't have to. Any guess is helpful, I've never kept a betta before but I have kept other fish for many years. :)
