Fins entire tank

So as you can see, Fin has less than a tank to swim in. I've blocked off the side with the filter so he has very calm water and doesn't struggle to swim.
You can see him at the front, curious as ever.
He has a rock cave, a leaf hammock and one silk plant.

When his fins grow back I will remove the divider so he can strengthen himself in water with more movememt.

The divider is a piece of bendy plastic with holes around the edges. This allows enough filtration for the water to remain heated the same in the entire tank whilst keeping his side very calm.

** I have a feeling this photo is going to load sideways, sorry about that.

Looking forward to the progress! I got confused, though. Who is the betta in your profile pic?? I saw that one in your other thread about Fin. And I thought, "well he doesn't look so bad at all??"

Be careful of the rock cave. I've seen similar looks ones in pet stores and the insides the like sandpaper. Maybe yours isnt like that or you already sanded it down. I just wanted to let you know just in case.

Thankyou, yes the cave is a bit rough, I think I'll get some sealant and cover the entire thing smooth.

I could be totally off here, but sealant doesn't seem like a good idea. Maybe it's just me and I'm overly cautious but I wouldn't feel safe putting the chemicals from the sealant (even after drying and rinsing) in the tank - especially with Fin's fragile state.

I'm soooo happy to see he is doing so well! :)

If sealant was unsafe, all glass tanks would kill fish as sealant is used to seal the pieces of glass. Fin will be fine.

Thankyou! Sealant, as long as it's the correct one is absolutely safe. It's like the shiny stuff that is coated over Aqua products so we can use them safetly in our aquariums.

Fin's First Bubble Nest!!! Day 8

Ohhhhhhhmygod.
So I know there's many schools of thought just WHY fish build bubble nests, but I'm going to stroke my ego by imagining Fin did it because he's content and happy.
When I saw it I was all OMGFINBUILTABUBBLENEST!!!!! Squeeeeeeeee!!!!!

At any rate, this makes me so happy because he is clearly getting more energy and his fins are growing too! Check out the most recently photo below...I see blue in those fins!
