The fin will crumble off and try to regrow, but grows deformed and with extra fleshy stuff and it's been like this for at least 2 months! She eats...

    I bought a red, male, halfmoon betta on August 16. His name is Salsa :angryfire :smile2: He has tons of energy and the 10 gallon tank he's in has good parameters: around 79 °F (26 °C). 0 ppm ammonia; 0 ppm nitrite; 5 ppm nitrate. There are no other fish in the tank- just 4 apple snails and 10...

    Hey guys, I've been treating my fish for fin rot (the outbreak followed a case of ich.) It was successful for the most part, but one neon tetra's tail still looks damaged, and there is no sign of improvement.

    So far my re-introduction to the planted tank hobby has had disastrous surprises. Here is what happened: I started my first tank (Tank 1) last month, 2.5 gallons. It's moderately planted, and it has more or less cycled successfully, and housed one rosetail betta fish. Then after 2 weeks) I...
