My Betta's fins have been getting more and more tattered recently, despite being in a big 2.5 gallon tank. Has he been fin nipping? I'm pretty sure there is nothing sharp in the tank that could catch his fins. Here's the best picture I could get of him.

Lighting can be a big issue with some fin biters. Some floating plants (even sideways silk plants and upside down silk plants) will help difuse the light and make him feel secure. It's a start to deal with fin nipping. Not every fish nips for the same reason.

He normally doesn't get too much light. Just a few hours every day. Do they not enjoy light?
