HEY, don't worry! I've done ridiculously stupid things to poor Omelette many times....I even put in a plastic plant that I did NOT test with my hands, I was too excited to see how it looked. He ended up with tears ALL over his tail and anal fins. The poor boy healed up QUICK, though.
And even though Drago may be missing a giant chunk, even if a whole fin were missing, IT WILL REGROW!!
Do not despair! Bettas are like starfish! Take off a fin and it will be back soon! Well, not very soon. It'll take around 2-3 months to completely regrow that little mistake there, but as long as Drago looks as happy as he was, you're FINE.
Believe me, I've cried my eyes out because I thought my baby starlings were dying when I fed them earthworms, not knowing that they harbor dangerous parasites....I was freaking out over nothing: a beginner's mistake.
Right now the starlings are be-bopping around in their cage, shuffling around for food, and generally having fun. They're better. They're healthy. But I learned from my mistakes.
7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats
Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail
