If he is tail biting, you should see chunks of fins missing, where as fin rot moves slower and more even usually with discoloration and tissue looks kinda rotty. You just need to make sure the water is super clean so that the bitten area do not become infected. I heard HMs have the tendency to tail bite due to its heavier finnage, there really isn't any medication that would keep them from doing it. I would suggest changing his decor more often so that he won't have time to think about how troublesome his fins are :) I just pray mine won't come to this stage, as I can see it does take more effort for them to swim compared to the VTs or CTs.

Good luck.

Cheers!

Well....I guess I spoke too soon! One of my HMs became a tail biter himself. *sigh*

Good luck with yours!
