Good job! He'll enjoy resting on the bigger leaves, too.

Thanks for the reply Barliman. I'm trying to do something that I normally do not do and that is cultivate a wide variety of plants in a tank. If this is successful, I may re-scape one of my 55s...I'm thinking ADA Aquasoil Amazonia and some really cool plants. I have the CO2, nutrients, and lights, I just gotta come up with a cool looking scape.

Hi, I'm new to this forum and don't know how to start a new thread. I recently moved my betta into a 30 Gallon planted tank. I came in Tuesday morning to find him all shredded from being stuck in the filter. I have since bought some bettafix and have covered the filter so he can no longer get stuck. However, this morning his fins seemed to have worsened and I found bits of them lying at the bottom of the tank. He is swimming fine but he only ate one pellet. Is it normal for him to lose his damaged fins to grow new ones?

Well it is good that you covered the intake on the filter. He is prolly in shock...just keep an eye on him...he might pull through. Maybe add some floating plants to the tank. My plants when mature will grow to the surface except the front.

I think he'll pull through, he has eaten another pellet and has become quite a bit more active. The only thing that is concerning me is the fact I found bits of fin on the tank floor. Apart from that and his limited appetite he is acting normal. Could he have possibly bit those bits off himself?

I doubt he bit them off himself.

Yeah, apparently it's just dead tissue flaking off so he can start regrowing new fins. He seems to be fine now, just looking a little tatty.

On occasion they are known to bite themselves.

Since the filter got him im sure thats the issue. Generally gets torn on hardscape or finrot.
