CC, the betta who had horrible tail rot.

On one of my first posts on (and the reasoned I joined) fishlore was about a male betta who had really bad fin rot. His tail was GONE, and he looked horrible. He still ate and everything, but swimming was hard for him.
(I've never posted a picture of him before, but I don't know why.
so you guys havn't seen him.)

He's getting better! Here he is!

It took him about a month, maybe a bit longer. It's still growing back, so I hope is long beautiful tail will grow back soon.

To treat him? Or just to add to the water?
I WAS treating him with Melafix, then BettaFix, and it seemed to be working... but COBetta I think it was you two who told me that a lot of bettas have died from Melafix, and that Bettafix was just a smaller dose...

Yea, the tea tree leafs have a mostly negative effect on the air labyrinth organ, but I'm glad your guy pulled through.

The Vita-Chem and Fish Protector both boost fin regrowth in fish.. which has helped our angels a lot too.

Okay, so do you have to order that online or can you get it here?
I'll take a look at my LFS today to see if they have any in-stock.

How long did it take him to grow his tail back? Do you have any photos of him at his worse? He looks so good you'd never even know he was ill..

Alright, thanks again! I'll be sure to order some for him. I can't wait to see his tail the way it used to be!

To the amount that he has now, it took him a little while longer than a month. I might have some pictures of when it was bad, but not at it's worse.
I only bought my camera about three weeks about.

Perhaps your RafikkI has a long lost brother... You might want to do some DNA checks...
