At least he wiggles for my attention first. It's -wiglewiggle- Attention attained. -flare- Give food NOW.

At least he's still got his healthy appetite. It's so hard to resist feeding him now. I feel so bad for causing the chemical burn even if it was unintentional. Too bad for him that he gets bloated easily. He'll have to wait for krill tomorrow morning.

I understand the guilt of unintentionally causing harm to one's fish. I have one betta who didn't need to bite his fins. I accidentally poured him in the sink and half of his anal fin got torn clean off when I shut the drain in a panic. He flares at my finger at least once a day and hides in his plants when I look at him. The guilt, the guilt!

I wish mine would eat the same food. But no, one will only eat bloodworms, another one will only eat micropellets, still another likes regular pellets . . .

it was such a pretty tail too. kind of thinking his crazy pectorals might have been part of the motive. he doesn't really have issues swimming, but I'm sure it's easier without the tail weighing him down, lol

i'm glad someone made this thread. i never thought i'd end up with a tail biter! i still don't know what triggered it.

before:


he had slight fin rot when i brought him home from the store so i QT'd him in AQ salt for 10 days, then returned him to his tank.

but, i have to say that i did accidentally drop him in the sink once while changing his AQ salt water, and i shut the drain, which tore his anal fin, but it wasn't really major. it's fully healed now.

after about two or three weeks from then, he started this:


then, about a month ago from now, i saw this when i came home from school:


gosh, i was just so sad.

he currently looks like this:


you can see the parts where it's growing back. i hope he doesn't do anything else major. every week when i do his 100% water change, i move his decor around in hopes of deterring his tail biting.
