I just got back from out of town, and my betta has really ragged fins. The ammonia and nitr(i/a)tes are fine. Any Idea on what happened?

Any tankmates?

It could be tankmates nipping, something sharp in the aquarium (decor, fake plants, etc), or he could be self mutilating. I had a betta who self mutilated and I could never get him to stop no matter what I did (different tank sizes, tankmates, no tankmates, time with a mirror, etc).

Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 0

There are no tankmates. All plants are silk, the only decoration is very smooth, and I have never seen him tail biting

Maybe it is an alien abduction?

Maybe the filter did it...



I'd go with self mutilation though.
