I have a male betta crowntail that is having an issue with its fins. The webbing on his dorsal fin is ballooning and growing faster than the rest of his fins. The water parameters are great with only Nitrates and they are around 5-10. He lives alone in a cycled Spec V 5 gallon tank at 80 degrees and low flow. I do have harder water with higher calcium from the tap. I feed him once daily New Life spectrum betta food, and once weekly frozen brine shrimp. This balloon is growing and becoming unsightly but doesn't seem to affect his health. I was considering sedating him and removing the extra growth. Does anyone know what is causing this, a way to correct it? I have attached an image, if you click on it you can clearly see the issue. Thanks!
