I believe my betta is nipping at his own fins and I have no clue why as he lives in a 7 gallon heavily planted tank with a heater and a couple of shrimp yet his fins are still gradually getting worse what should I do?? I believe stress makes bettas nip at their own fins so should I move the plants around and get some floating plants or what??
I added a water bottle baffle to my filter this morning to entice Castor to swim about her tank more and she's already gone and torn another fin. The one that was torn when I bought her is still healing (it's been kinda long now). Should I add some Melafix to the water to help her heal? It says it's for torn fins.
On of my tropical fish (danios) has a large clear bubble on its fin, there is also blood around the bubble. The water is still clear, the other fish seem fine as well. It does look quite bad, I have already lost one of the fish after it jumped out of the tank via the small space in the back for cables. Could anyone offer advice on how this (what ever it is) could be treated. I have added a link to a video below of the fish: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bP-oryLImpk&feature=youtu.be Many Thanks.

Hi Guys, So, a couple of months ago I bought a 19L Fluval Chi, And I put my 2 Danios in, and My 2 Minnows in it that I had from a previous tank, unfortunately, one of the danios died. and my mum has 1 of the minnows, sooooooo, when I bought the tank, I went and got a fantail, before any of you jump down my throat about the tank being too small, I know, but I wanted to have a goldfish for a few months, and recently, it stayed at the bottom of the tank, and it had little white spots all on its tail, and it was sluggish and didn't move much except for food, I've seen it move properly for the first time in a while earlier, and I found that on the top left part of it's tail it has a lot of blood, and in the top left part it has a little bit of blood coming from it, and on the bottom fin too. Please, someone help? Thanks, T
