As a last resort, but I don't think you are at that point yet, but just saying as a completely last resort, you could try taking him out of the tank and dabbing hydrogen peroxide to affected areas. I read that it works wonders BUT you absolutely can't get any on his gills or he'll die.

I managed to get a picture, but you can't see the tears unless he's moving. I tried getting a shot of them with sports mode on with no luck.

You can kinda see one of them in this one but my fat finger blocked half of the shot

Decided to have a little photoshoot with Rajah since I can never get a good picture of him. Got three. I also discovered he's very close to being a HMPK. The very base of his caudal reaches 180 degrees flared but it's rounded. Not sure if that qualifies. Got a picture of it but it came out horribly blurry.

Roman is officially on his way here as of yesterday. He should be here tomorrow. Hopefully my data lasts until then so I can spam this thread with pictures. x.x

I keep forgetting this is a 'Life' journal too, so I don't have to refrain from posting cute dog pictures.

Dog time!

Roman should be here in 2-4 hours. I just finished making his little floating tube. And I've been eyeing his temperature. It seems his heater isn't working like it's supposed to despite being fine for a week. The most it'll go up to is 76 degrees, on the highest setting. I think the light is just turning on but it's not heating anything. It was just at a stable 80 degrees two days ago.

Something always seems to go wrong when I try getting another Betta.. Maybe that's a sign. First Sebastian with the cracked tank the day before I was going to bring him home, then Meeko with the missing divider piece, now the broken heater. Aghhh.

What kind of heater is it? I know one kind I've used after a while wouldn't heat past 72.

I'm not sure. It came with the TopFin 10g kit. I switched it out from another tank when I upgraded his to a Hydor Theo. It's adjustable though.
