hey guys, just a quick update. he has been in his salt mixture in his tank for 2 days now. i changed his water this morning when i got up and gave him the second dose. his fins look better already, so i hope the progress keeps going up. i really honestly do not know why this all happened, but im so very glad that he is getting better :). thank you sakura, and everybody else who helped me out with this one and i will continue to use the salt treatment for a week or until his fins get unclamped all the way. thank you everybody :) btw, happy veterans day!

You're welcome. I'm glad his fins look better already and I'll continue to hope for a quick recovery for him. Keep us posted. :)

just gonna give a big shout out thanks to everyone who helped. Xavier is now completely healed. the crank up of his heat and the salt cured him, of whatever he had. he is doing really great now :)

thank you!!! i am really glad too..but hey, i started a threat on this. but waht do you think: i have quite a bit of plants in my 3 gallon cuz i thought my betta boy liked it..but im not sure if it is causing a bit of fraying in his fins cuz there are quite a bit of plants in there. i think i might have it overcrowded. so my question is...do you think having too many plants could cause some fin dmg, ie: fraying?

As long as the plants aren't sharp enough to snag pantyhose he's good to go! ^^
