Came home from work tonight to find my double tail had either torn or really blown his dorsal fin. I'm so sad his finnage has ripped...but always knew in the back of my mind that such massive finnage was more likely to blow or rip. I'm really hoping the new IAL that I dropped in his tank yesterday didn't do the damage. :( I'd feel really guilty if it did.
I know it's really important to keep the water warm and clean while he's healing. My tank finally finished cycling this week after about a month. I'm concerned too frequent/too high percentage water changes will crash the already delicate cycle in my tank. I'd like to know what you guys think. How often should I perform WC and what percent? Do you think it would be better to leave him in his own tank with his IAL or put him in QT with AQ salt? I don't currently have a QT tank so I wouldn't be able to pick one up until Monday (working noon to midnight Saturday and Sunday, UGH!)
I know it's not truly an emergency, per se. But I'm a worried betta mommy. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.
