    Hi! So I’m very new to having a fish and I’ve been paranoid about my new betta because I don’t want to cause it harm. I got him yesterday. I have a 5 gallon tank with a heater and filter. The water is cycled and all levels are good. Ever since I got him I notice his uppermost fin looks clamped. Is that how his fin is or is it clamped?? When he swims or is angled a certain way his fin looks closer to his body however at times his fins look flared out. Please help me I don’t want to hurt him

    His fins aren't clamped. That's just how they are.

    No need to be sorry. They forum is here so people can ask questions. And at FishLore you never have to worry about someone treating you like your question is stupid.
