Yesterday I bought a beautiful male betta, I put him in my established tank of fish. I watch for two hours, everything is fine. I go to bed, wake up the next morning and my fish just about destroyed my betta! Hi longs flowy fins torn clean off! He now has been moved to a tiny recovery tank. He has no fins and floats at the top stressed out. I doubt he will even live to see his fins grow back. and don't think I'm exaggerating in how badly hurt he was, he doesn't even have threads. All I can see is the remains of his tail bones and a very full stressed fish, almost lifeless. I feel awful. I got rid of all those fish, for obvious reasons. I know it's more my fault but they too were in the wrong. My 10 gallon tank is empty and saddening. I feel awful. My poor betta. Wish me luck nursing the poor guy back to health! The minimum tank size that should be used for a betta fish setup should be at least or larger.
