Sorry for your loss. Was his fins being nipped at or did he have a bacterial infection that causes the fins to erode.

Thank you.

I'm not sure, how could I tell the difference?

He was chased a bit by one of my fish, but only very occasionally, and I never saw him actually be nipped. I just used to look in the tank in the morning and see his fins sometimes torn overnight.

Usually if it`s a bacterial thing all the fins will be looking ragged and eroded.

No, it was just the odd fin, one fin one day, then another the next. They seemed to heal quickly. He was eating just fine and very active just the night before though. He had a big chunk taken out of his tail a few days before, which was the worst fin tear I've seen, and he seemed fine after that. It all seems so sudden.

Yeah if you seeing big chunks taken out then it had to be something from the tank. Again Sorry about the loss.

Stress then you mean? Do fish actually get hurt when their fins are ripped?

Could it be a fire worm? As I was told that they can get up to 5" in length and if they can they will try to eat fish that they can catch
