    Can plastic plants rip betta fins? And for ripped fins what medication would you use? I am currently using BettaFix which I treated a previous betta with for open sores.
  9. EE Male ripped off one of his fins :( How to heal?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My sister's fish Triton ripped off one of his beautiful fins. He's an Elephant Ear so I imagine it must be hard to swim with one huge fin and one teeny fin. Any suggestions on how to heal it? You know what's ironic about the second picture? If you look at the bottom of the tank you'll see a...
