hi all! I'm a long time betta owner (my fishies average 3-4 years each) and my current betta is around a year old at this point. he's been doing wonderfully, always happy and curious, but suddenly it looks like his fins have blown out and for the life of me I cannot figure out why. I've never had this issue with any of my past fish. he's a halfmoon betta and has fairly large fins that have torn in two different places. has anyone else experienced this and what have you done to help them heal?

I have a betta, but only had him about 6 months, so I don't really have any suggestions. :( I hope he gets better!

Not got one nor do I know anything about them but another Fishee owner. For my birthday last month I got diamond neon tetra and 4 bumblebee catfish.

Could it be fin rot?

I was thinking fin rot as well Tifi, atleast that's what it sounds like (my old betta had it). IF it is, I used Bettafix and it cleared it up :)

I hope whatever it is isn't too serious for the little guy!

thanks y'all! I looked into Bettafix and I'm going to give that a shot! :) he's still his chipper little fish self--hopefully this will help heal his fins

I can see new fin growth coming in! Still unsure as to what caused the fin rot, but he's on his way to recovery :)
