    My male betta, Starmi, appears to be biting his own caudal fin.

    Thoughts:
    -two male bettas in a separated 5 gal tank, heater, filter, air bubbles, lots of plants to hide separator.
    -100% water change today
    -within the last month my bettas beat the separator and attacked each other. Staryu is fully healed, Starmi isn't. He was about half healed before the water change and now his fin is ragged again. I feed them once a day and vary it with brine shrimp on occasion.
    -dominance flaring after each water change seams to occur. Staryu ignores usually, Starmi instigates.

    What can I do to try to get Starmi to stop biting? He isn't going to get better if he keeps eating his own tail

    -I have used aquarium salt daily since the incident and every water change is done with stress coat plus water conditioner to de-chlorinat. What else can I be doing to help?

    Fish update:

    I now have two! I adopted the second one from the person I got the larger 5 gallon tank. Everything seemed fine until the two of them proved that fish are smart and found a way past the impromptu separator. This happened not only once, but twice. Now I am very careful of it until I can make it a little more sturdy and better sized. The fins seem to be healing and due to paychecks I can and have gotten almost anything they could need....also early xmas presents from my family were very nice.

    Gravel is my bathrooms worst enemy, so now I have aquarium rocks and glass pebbles.

    How does one keep aggression down between two males? Also, opaque but water flow-able separator would be nice to help this situation. I can almost say that both of them are "charging" at the other now, instead of my first fish. This is starting to bother me and I know it isn't good for my babies. Any suggestions?

    I'm a new proud betta fish mom and things have been crazy for me since I got my male betta, Starmi, about a week or so ago. My original bowl broke while I was cleaning it and I had to purchase a new bowl on a budget of 20$ plus a plant for the tank. I have an air pump system 1 gal (possibly 2) tank and my betta seemed more active with the larger tank. The water got foggy a day after putting Starmi in it. And then I noticed his color was more purpley (fins) orange (head). He started out navy blue with streaks of purple in his fins. The color change scares me and after reading through this site, I am panicking. I have no heater, only betta bites as food, nor a filter, my tank is too small and I do not have the funds to do more than I already have. I am already attached to this sweet fella, he responds to me already. Just thinking he might die because I do not have everything he might need scares me. Please, someone reassure me I will not kill Starmi if I cannot get everything right away.
