    I use Omega One Betta buffet with frozen bloodworms as treats. To be honest, I'm a little worried about the holes in your guy's fins. I think that may be a different problem. I think it would be a good idea to post the problem in the Disease and Emergency part of the forum and fill out the chart for the experts.

    There's a chance that the holes are fin rot that's starting at the base of the fin and not the edge. Filling out the chart and posting a picture in the disease section will hopefully get more skilled help.

    It won't let me put the url's on here for you. In the disease section, there's a sticky about answer these questions (it has everything you've told me but in a list/chart format for people to read more easily) and another sticky about what some of the diseases look like.

    And I saw that you had Barry in a hospital tank. That's really not needed because I think it's just tail biting. But, if it makes you feel safe then I guess you could keep him in there.

    I saw your visitor message on my page. Maybe our bettas just bit their tails so much there's no "U" shape anymore. I hope he heals soon!

    Mr. Fish never had holes in his fins. His fins are recovering from his fin biting, but he still bites his fins from time to time. Warm, clean water and good food are what I'm continuing to treat him with. Since he's a chronic fin biter, I don't want to keep medicine in there all the time. He marbled at the same time he started fin biting and is now piebald with green all over except the tips of his fins. My profile picture is an old picture from before his fin biting.

    Usually, fin biting leaves a little "U" shaped place on the ends of the fins. If your guy has holes in it, there might be a different problem. How does your filter work? Mine has big holes where it sucks the water in, and I had to cover those holes with a sponge. I've heard of filter intakes causing holes and tears in betta fins if they rest against it. I suppose it could also be some kind of infection from fin biting (if he started doing it again).

    I hope that helps. I hope your guy recovers!
