I can tell that Cobalt is up to something-- he's been acting Fishy -- ha pun intended. But seriously he is up to no good! ;D

Well, he hasn't got me yet, but I did stick my finger in the tank, and he tried a nibble. I think he thought I had food. I rearranged his tank during the "tank cleaning fiasco" so the new setup is keeping him busy. He likes to swim through the cords and airline tubing loops. I think he is a circus fish!! ha ha. One more day of meds. Is there anything that I can put in his water to promote fin regrowth after the meds?

LOL.. he is like our Aslan (who almost ate my hand off yesterday) - he loves swimming through loops in this big plant he has with LONG leaves/fronds, whatever they are.. lol

I'd post a new topic to get advice on the best products for fin regrowth out there from members who've been in the Betta world a while. I think NovAqua+ or Prime are popular choices, but not 100% on that. ??? Sorry I'm not more help on that one. I'm glad he's doing good and will be over that fin rot soon.

The fins will grow back on their own. It will take some time, maybe even a few months before you see anything. Just make sure you keep his water very clean and do your water changes and gravel vacs regularly. Clean water conditions are the best thing. You just have to be patient. Fins take time to grow.

Yea, that's true phloxface.. our Aslan had torn his fins a bit on a piece of decor that seemed alright, but is now gone as we're pretty sure he's not nipping his own fins.. We've not been treating him & he now has a lot of white at the ends. I know the meds might speed it up & I'm all for finding the best if that's the route you want to go, we each need to follow the course we feel best for our babies, but they are good little fin-healers left to their own in good clean water & maybe some extra vitamins just to build their systems up naturally. Aslan loves his Betta vitamin pellets. ;D
