Fin Nipping

Postby Kimothy » Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:18 pm

I have a Betta in my community tank and he seems to have been getting along fine with all the other fish for quite a while now, However whilst we were out today it looks like our fish have had their own world war! All my guppies have been fin nipped (3 males 5 females) I can only assume it's either them doing it to each other or my betta!

I have noticed some behavioural changes in my betta so I think he may be the nipper. He's suddenly started hanging around the opposite end of the tank and hiding inside a log ornament and popping out to chase away the other fish when they get near to him.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do to stop this?

Thanks

He's been moved into a 10l tank on his own.
