    So, as someone who's dealt with a biter for a long time now, I've gotten to experience the lovely mood swings that come with regrowth and then shredding again. Ugh. Anyone else want to chime in and vent and/or provide any sort of advice or comfort? Biting sucks, but we're all in this together!

    Last month you guys helped me diagnose that my betta was biting his fins. I fixed the stressor and everything was going good. Today I know that the ends of his fins were a lighter red then he is and looked like webbing. I do not know if it is from him biting again, fin rot or fin regrowth from...

    Hello, I currently have 2 bettas in a divided tank. One of my bettas has always had fin biting issues and is currently in the process of regrowing his fin. However, his bottom fin appears to be curling and it looks different then when I first got him. I don't know if it is some minor fun rot...

    My beautiful blue male is driving me a little bit crazy. He won't stop chewing on his tail! Every time it starts to grow back, he it right off again. He is very active and seems happy. He is fed adequately, but not overfed. He has plenty of plants to hide and play in, and his water is 78...
