Happy new year, everyone!
After my post yesterday about Alex's torn tail, I've been watching him very closely. Thanks to taking a few pictures of him, I can track his progress, and it looks like his tail is knitting back together very nicely at the places where it tore!
With good water conditions, a healthy betta can heal simple injuries very quickly, and I'm so glad that this has been the case for Alex. Poor little chap! I think tonight I'll give him some frozen-thawed bloodworms - his favourite!
