I now own a frayed tail betta


Recommended Posts

Well he did it again.

My Royal Blue betta HM jumped the divider again and got himself into abit of trouble with my Turq BF HM.

I came home to find him missing from his compartment and cowering in the corner of the compartment next door where my other betta is kept.

I lowered the water high even more!!! add some metal fly screen across the top, I hope that stops him!!!!

Ill try and get some photos tonight, little bugger!

Nothing torn on the Turq HM just him!

Yeah you would think so but i tell ya what .... wouldn't surprise me if he worked a way out how to get in next door.

Anyway i thought he would have had a little sook and got depressed and died because his manliness was squashed or because of his fin damage/infection. Ill have to wait and see how the later unfolds.

At the moment he is having a ball in the 2ft tank by himself swimming against the filter current and the getting a ride back down the current. As i said i thought he would he sulking but he is not which is a good sign.

Anyway a few photos. Sorry they are bad but i dont want to take him out of the tank and disturb him anymore then i should. You get the idea anyway! His Dorsal fin is almost gone and his caudal fin is frayed a lot and a bit of anal fin is gone

where can you get these ketapang leaves/ extracts ?? or would a substitute such as Tetra Blackwater extract be fine??

I also have some problems with my HM finnage. Though, it was not due to fighting but due to tail-biting (lost 3/4 of his caudal fin).

Sorry to hear about your fish.. i hope he can recover soon.!!

Thanks for the info Bettarazzi.

The one in aquariumproducts.com.au seem to be good choice.

I just bought a substitute for blackwater, it is aquasonic Blackwater concentrate. It doesn't really seem to darken my water, i had to triple the dosage to make it a little tannin. Costed me 9 dollars for 100ML ><
