Betta tail damage

Recommended Posts

I've been out of town for a few days and hubby has been feeding everyone, says everyone has been fine.. I noticed that Roy Miller has some damage to his tail. He's in a 3g w/ a 10g filter baffled.. there is a small layer of substrate w/ some plants. I change his water every 4-7 days and will be getting more plants later this week... anyways this is the only pic I could get of him as he faces me when I'm at his tank. He's never flared at me before. I'll try to get better pics w/ my digital camera. If you can make out his tail; should I be worried about this?

oh my he is Gorgeous :) is he a double tail?or is that the damage?? i always relied on good clean water for any fin problems with my bettas...if its tail biting I think some tank re arranging and lots of hiding places to explore should help along with good clean water ;)

I for some reason can't see the picture. But I have to agree. Nice clean water and more hiding places.

Good luck

This is his tank, smaller than I wish I could give him but that's all I got for now.

I'm fine to do as many water changes as needed... how often do you recommend?

I never thought a hiding place would be that big of a deal.. Poor dude. He had a little thing in his other tank but never used it so I took it out. I feel like a bad betta mom now. Lol. I'll get him a new hidey asap!

Hiding places are for him to rest. It can be anyhthing a cup. Or a fish tank item.

I agree about needing a 'hidey hole', it may help. But the water perams will really be helpful.
