Keep that water very clean and you might want to consider an antifungal or antibacterial medication.
    Thanks for the quick reply. We've never seen Henry (the betta) confront the guppies at all, he's actually quite shy, rests on the heater top suction cup or in his house most of the time. Of course, it's summertime, and Lauren slept most of the day while on summer vacation, so I'm not sure of any new nipping action or fighting today, which is easy to observe if you don't waste all day sleeping.

    I have no meds on hand, I will keep a close eye on the situation. He's acting pretty normal eight now.

    Just did a 70% PWC Wednesday, so the water's good for now...I may do another later tonight, can't hurt.

    I wouldn't rule out the platys picking on him, the betta is just the go to guy when it comes to aggression. Regardless of who is doing it, those fins definitely look nipped. I agree on the small water change today. Many times finrot, when caught early, can be cured with just clean water and the fishes own immune system. But, watch it closely, you may need to medicate.

    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Prazi-Pro is for parasites.
    You want something like Tetra Fungus Guard, ParaGuard, or Furan 2.

    Sadly, the guppy did not make it...he lived through the night, ate a little bit this morning, but just found him on the gravel, with a bunch of that fungus on him, barely moving...I went ahead and euthanized him

    RIP little guy

    Thanks mom, much appreciated...Lauren's in College Station, I texted her to let her know...told her we can get another next week if she wants to

    Just got back from Petco, ugh, most of the poor fish they keep looked awful...and the betta cups, I can't even look at

    But like you've said before, as long as people keep buying them....
