Elephant / Dumbo Ear Fin Rot

ryle89

Hello,

I hope everyone’s been okay. My elephant / dumbo ear betta just had a bout of fin rot on his right pectoral fin. I did a water change and my betta recovered quickly (thank God) after 24 hours without any treatment at all. However, he lost a significant bit of the affected fin . When it regrows, would it still go back to its original flowy form? I have provided photos before and after the rot for reference.

Many thanks!

It should. I would keep up more frequent than usual water changes to help with regrowth. Mine always seem to grow back a little quicker that way.

Thank you! ☺️
how is he now?
He is much better now. The affected fin has grown back considerably. It started with that fin being clamped then the rot happened almost immediately. That gave me quite a fright!
