    Help! Ciel is a tail biter and I'm trying to get him stop. I thought I did already for a few days, but then I came home to a lot of new damage. I think it might be because I skipped a meal today. I had to be away from home the entire day because there was a really important conference, so I fed...

    I've had my betta spot for 6 weeks. After week one i noticed that his top, bottom and front fins were being to curl. I thought it might be fin rot so I got him some IAL and began water changes every other day. Still got worse, so I began adding very small amounts of aquarium salt. Still got...

    I've had my betta for a month. He is in a 5 gallon, cycled tank with a heater and filter. Water change every 1-2 weeks. He is a Elephant Ear Betta (Man, I love these) Today, I noticed he tore one of his front long fins. I am almost positive he tore it on this fake plant I have in the tank...

    While feeding Merlin, I noticed he tore one of his fins. While examining him, I also noticed he had a bit of black on his fins that wasn't there before. His top fin seems to be receding more, however I may be wrong, since he didn't have a tank light before, and now I can see him way better. I...

    Hello! For just a few days I've noticed my bettas fins have torn (he's about 6 months). I have a Fluval Spec III (2.6 gal) and he generally had been resting against the filter intake (but this was ongoing for months with no visible damage - my water speed was too high which I have since taken...

    I have three very spoiled boys with heated tanks, silk plants, and a terra cotta pot for decoration/hiding. The tanks are 2.5, 2.5, and 3 gallons respectively. I'm having problems with biting/tail splits and the only thing I can think that would have caused it is that some of the silk leaves are...

    A couple months ago, I got my first betta fish since I was little. He did fine for a while, until a few weeks ago when I noticed a pretty large tear and a few pinholes in his anal fin. I figured he scraped them against the plastic plant in his aquarium, so I bought him a live plant and some...

    Last night, my betta fish, Aomine, jumped out of his smaller container when I was trying to take him out of his tank. He landed on my laptop and then flipped onto the chair. I immediately put him back into his tank. He was shocked for a little, but now he's swimming around and acting perfectly...

    Hey there, I've had my fish Mahak for a week now. He was doing fine, making a buttload of bubble nests and playing with the bubbles from the baffled filter outtake but today I noticed that he has a tear in his fine about 1/3 length of his back fin. This just happened today as this morning he...

    There are several rocks with holes in them at PetCo, I have refrained from buying them because they might tear my double tail's fins. Will they tear them? I want to know.

    Hey guys, ok so this morning while feeding Honeycomb, i noticed one piece of his caudal fin (tail-where he had originally torn it--NO fin rot:-)) was torn with a string and then a split. I had removed his castle last week because i thought he had torn it on that. He was WAY better after i...

    Not sure exactly what's going on with Reggie. I got him Monday. Monday I kept him in a 1 gallon QT tank. Tuesday I did full water change to QT tank while his new tank finished cycling. I noticed while changing water that it looked as if his fins might be splitting. Last night I got everything...

    I noticed a super tiny hole in my CT males anal fin. WTH? I've been all through the care threads but I feel like this is an unadressed issue... :-? He has only live plants, there is no way he has ripped on anything in his tank. Besides, it doesn't look like a rip, just a hole... grrr. I have...

    Today when I came from school, I went to see and feed Lightning and I checked the filter (Mini Bow 2.5 filter) and I saw a fin I think, it was red. When I pick it up to see what it was red liquid came out which I suspect is blood. And he has like a triangle cut on his caudal fin or tail. Also...
