Woke up this morning to find Fynn's tail fin all..."shredded." I'm guessing it's tail-biting? I can't tell. I looked all over his tank carefully, and couldn't find any chunks of his tail in the tank decor...or in the filter. At a loss here. I took out the one plastic plant that was in there just to be on the safe side. (Never had a problem before, but who knows?) The filter is baffled, so IDT it's that. Fins were just getting so long, and pretty! Le sigh. I appreciate any input and help.
