I got a betta maybe two days ago and I noticed she has a fin that's sorta bent. It's one of the fins at the bottom... I don't know the name of the fins yet :). The other one is fine. Could it be clamped? She doesn't seem stressed. She eats. I was just wondering if I should be worried. It kind of looks like a sideways L. I'll fill this out.
What size is your tank? 2.5 gallons
What temperature is your tank? probably 76-78ish
Does your tank have a filter? Yes, I dont use it. It makes a lot of current
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? Nope.
Is your tank heated? No. It is under the heating vent in the warmest room of the house though, so it is really warm. (It's warm here)
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? Not any, she does have a tiny Crowntail female next to her (not divided, separate tank) if that helps! She had the fin before she came.
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? New Life Spectrum Betta Formula (small pellets)
How often do you feed your betta fish?
2-4 pellets in the morning and at night.
How often do you perform a water change? Havent made a real number, but I changed 5% today. It's still clean.
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? Same as above.
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? When I first put her water in I put Betta water conditioner and
a tiny bit of AQ salt.
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?
Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? No, it's been the same.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? No, she's exploring and eating.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Yesterday or so.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Nope, unless you include the AQ salt i put in when it was cycling.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Nope, she seems perfect, just the L shaped fin is all.
How old is your fish (approximately)? Hard to tell got her 2 days ago :)
Thanks in advance for any help :).
