Fish Fin Rot

Fish fin rot is an indication of injury or disease in your fish. It is the most common in goldfish and betas, but can affect other fish as well. Most times it is an indication of other problems, such as injury or poor environmental conditions.

Fish rot is indicated by the erosion or shredding of the fish’s fin, normally beginning at the outer end. It can be bacterial or fungal, and can be caused by a variety of common reasons, such as poor water conditions, diet, or injury.

Once diagnosed, fin rot is generally easily and quickly treated, as the fish’s fins can be regenerated, unless the condition progresses past the base of the fin. This is extremely dangerous to the fish as, with bacterial infections, it can be absorbed into the body of the fish and subsequently kill the fish.
