Betta fin erosion

  1. Goofy Gourami Initiate Member

    My betta has been acting normal, if not being a little shy. I've noticed just the past few days that his fins are eroding on the ends. I don't know how long this has been going on, as I had been on vacation for several weeks with a family friend caring for my aquatic creatures. I completed a water change on Thursday and added a dose of Seachem Prime directly to the tank today to supply some slime coat. I'm going to see if he improves, and I will post updates. I'm open to suggestions on course of action.

    Hi, he is in the 10g that you show in your profile?
    If so, Keep up on water changes-no more than 50% every couple of days. If no improvement in a week or so, you might want to move him to a tank by himself to treat.
    Good luck! :)

    He hasn't been getting any worse. Today I began to feed him frozen brine shrimp for better nutrition, and bought him fresh pellets.
