She was one of the first fish I put in so she's been in there since September. As I said she used to have long flowing fins so I'm not sure why they've disappeared over time.

Did you notice this happen slowly over months or did this happen quicker in the time span of a week or two?

Regardless it is not good her fins are that far gone. It is best for her to relax in the box you have her in now. This way she wont have to swim away from anything and the water is cycled. Hopefully she can make a good recovery.

To keep female bettas in community tank you need to add atleast six more. This way they'll spread out their agression out among each other. But with the fish you have I think it would be best to give them their own tank.

55 gallon planted tank, starting over!!!( looking crappy, needs a major rescape)

Ok once again thanks for the info guys. Just to update you on the situation, the danio is still in the breeding box and seems ok, fins seems to be growing back ever so slightly. How long should I keep her in the box tho as it has been a week now?

My 60l tank has arrived and I'm in the process of setting it up and hope to have it ready in a couple of weeks. Sadly one of the bettas has died, she was struggling at the bottom of the tank and then died after a day or so.

However she wasn't the overly aggressive one, so I still have the one that I believe has been harrassing the Danio. So would I now be best to put the remaining betta in the new tank and also out of the fish I have which would you put in the new tank when ready and how many?

I was thinking of putting the betta in, maybe the 3 pencil fish I have and the 5 serpas. Is the tank too small for them as they are quite active?

Cheers
