Many fish owners have other fish in the tank with their bettas. Either through contact with other aggressive fish, other bettas or betta diseases, they may notice the betta fins become torn, ripped or jagged. A common question after noticing this condition is whether the fins will regenerate. The answer lies in how the fish lost part of its fins.
Fin rot can cause betta fins to appear jagged, or incomplete. This is because the tank conditions have deteriorated in your tank, parasites and bacteria have attacked your betta, and begun to eat the betta fins or tail. This disease is very easy to treat, and virtually never leads to other afflictions. Betta fin rot is virtually non-existent in a clean, well- maintained tank that has approximately one tablespoon per five gallons of aquarium salt added.
Your fish’s fins will immediately start to regenerate and fill in the jagged, torn spots almost immediately after the tank conditions improve. It is then a mere case of ongoing tank maintenance.
Betta fins can, however, also become damaged due to fighting other fish. When this occurs, the damage can be extensive. If not caught soon enough, the fighting can lead to severe damage that goes all the way to the body of the fish. Separation and treatment in a salt bath to protect against bacterial infection must be immediate.
In some severe cases, both disease and fighting can lead to permanent damage of the fins or tail, but in almost all cases, if the fish is treated properly, and eased back into a clean, well-maintained tank, fin and tail re-growth is guaranteed. Knowing the precise treatment of disease, and some trade secrets about tank maintenance, will allow you to effectively extend your betta lifespan to three to five years.
