Well, i noticed last week that my betta's fins looked really ragged in places. I gave him a salt bath and he didn't look any better. But he didn't look worse either, so i thought i would wait and see what happend. A week later and I am really getting worried! It is getting even worse and there is actually a chunk missing! This didn't happen over night but he didn't have it when i bought him. I noticed the filter was way to strong and even when i baffled it he was still stressed and freaking out! So today i took out the filter and have decided to just up the water changes. I did another Salt bath today and he doesn't look any better. So now i am posting here to see if i can get some help!
