Hi,
I just got some new fish and some plants( real).So I noticed that that 1 or 2
of the fish (Buenas Aires tetra) has what looks like fin rot.
The description is that a little bit of the fins are missing or ripped,it does not have any white on it or redness they seem to swim fine ect.
So is it just some of the fins ripped or fin rot.
It looks like this http://www.tropicalfishandaquariums.com/Tetras/BuenosAiresTetra2.jpg
thanks

That doesn't look like finrot but the fins are nipped.
BA tetras are very nippy - worse than tiger barbs IME - especially in small groups or at higher temperatures that their native water, These are cooler water fish than most tetras.

Thanks a lot for your input it really calmed me down and the tail did heal.
I had a big case of fin rot once and it killed a lot of fish so I've been in trauma since then.
