    Hi everyone, I’m worried that my Nebby has fin rot. I prepared a small hospital tank with API Aquarium Salt, but before I put him in it I want to get a second opinion to make sure that this really is fin rot and not just my anxiety making me freak out over nothing. Here is the filled out...

    When I first bought my Betta, (Alaska) he looked exactly like this except the last half of his fins were Snow White.

    This is Fishie when I first got him on 3/27 (beautiful little guy :-)) This is a shot from today, 4/11 I hope you can see the difference in his tail size. The biggest spot is literally right behind his "butt". Hi, this is my fish Fishie (I still don't have a name). He's the third betta...

    I got my Betta from Petsmart and have a heater in his tank and appears as if the parameters are fine, I've had done a water change but have noticed his tail is a bit tattered. I don't know if it's a Veiltail Mix or if it's just cosmetic damage, here's a look.
