Clean water, no sharp objects on tank and Indian Almond Leafs. My veiltail took 5months to regrow his fins....Lissi Kat said:I got him like that about 6 and a half months ago from a chain petstore I spotted him while they were having a sale on equipment and felt sorry for him. The initial month or so I had him some rips did seem to seal a little but since then nothing's changed about them and he's never given me any reason to worry about his health and seems to be a happy,very personable fish.He never matched any diagrams I see so hence my curiosity especially as he's healthy I didn't even think his fins would be ripped I thought if they were they would have grown back to normal by now but they're just as is.is there anything else extra I could do to see if they'll heal anymore?
There is a piece of wood i see in there too that could have done some damage.BobNJerry said:
That's the same as cappata leaves yes? I'll give those a try so! There's nothing in there that he could snag himself on as far as I can tell and he gets either 1 5gallon water change or 2 2.5gal a week and the highest I've ever seen nitrate is 15ppm.CanadianFishFan said:
Yep! Just add some leafs to help.Lissi Kat said:
Awe thanks I try my best! Haha I'm a sucker for plants I grow emersed dracanea and pothos out of that tank too i love the look and what it does for nitrates! And i think the fish feel more comfotrable too!i have monstera and peace Lilly in my other tank too it's a great way of propagating cuttings!BobNJerry said:
Perfect! Thanks a millionCanadianFishFan said:Yep! Just add some leafs to help.
I've checked to see if anything in there would snag him and I really can't find anything that would the wood is smooth has lots of moss on it and the pointy bits are either above the water or in the sand or pressed up against the glass.I'd be more concerned if I saw new damage on him but in the 6 or 7 months I've had him his fins only healed a tiny bit in the first few weeks and havnt changed since hence why it didn't even occur to me that they were rips as opposed to just a mutation that didnt wuite make it all the way to CTCanadianFishFan said:There is a piece of wood i see in there too that could have done some damage.
I'll definatly keep an eye on that! It's pretty dense with plants around the filters but you never know! I'll definatly give that a try I love all of their products I've used so far so any excuse to try a new oneAquaticJ said:
They're great value for money too you get some serious mileage of of them. I wouldn't even know how I'd cover them in sponge it looks like thisAquaticJ said:Me and you both, I love Seachem, always steer me in the right direction. My betta had been getting his fins sucked in and I covered it with a sponge. Their fins are like paper.
