I'm going to try and keep this short. My first better ever is named Jeoffry, he and one of my other males, Opal, are having some fin problems. I can't tell if there nipping or ripping them on something and even if they were I don't know on what they would be ripping them. The tanks only have live and silk plants in them and there behavior hasn't changed at all.

Here are the links of the albums I made to document it:
Opal:

Personally Jeoffry looks like fin biting... So does Opals (Not 100%) It doesn't look like fin rot to me. One question, the only way to tell is if the fins have black edges.. If they don't it's not fin rot.
