Fish/fighting fish


My fighting fish is a male and has a cut on his tail is that normal please give me any information.

Hello Jake, I need a little more information about the injury. Does it have any open wounds on his tail? Or does it just look like part of the tail has split? Also, if you could provide me with a picture of the betta, I would be able to diagnose your problem a lot easier.

I can answer most questions about fish care and maintenance. I am not an expert on saltwater aquariums but I am researching more about them on a daily basis. I have kept many different tropical freshwater fish as well as cichlids. Brackish water is my weakest category but if you have a question feel free to ask and I will do research on it myself.


I have kept fish for over 10 years. I am also an employee at a pet store and the head of the fish department. I am going to school at Emporia State University and studying biology with a concentration in ecology and biodiversity for undergraduate work. Right now my job is to care for and maintain the fish department at a local pet store. As far as water quality, I am well versed in different practices you can do to help improve conditions and what levels to look out for when testing the water.

I am majoring in Biology at Emporia State University and have researched fish reproductive behavior for the past decade.
