I'm not sure whats caused it, they have regular water changes (once a week) and I'm sure it's not fin rot as there is no white edge to it and it doesn't appear tattered, I haven't seen other fish fin nipping, so really not sure whats causing it, has been on going for over 4 months now with his tail gradually shrinking, any ideas??? He doesn't appear unwell, no clamped fins etc and races round the tank happily and gobbles up his food quickly.
