Unhappy there was a bad fight today

this morning I took out the gravel in my 10g divided because it was too hard to maintain and i was sick of all the nematodes or planaria crawling around.

i thought i secured the dividers well but I guess not I went out for a few hours and came home to my two halfmoons batteling it out. They must of been going at it for a while because they both look BAD.

Zeus has it the worst. His body and head are COVERED in bite marks and his poor eye His head is normally all black but looks like his head got the worst of it

Blaze just has lots of fin damage and a few bite marks on his body/head but he's hiding and wouldn't come out for pictures

Aww.. poor fishes. Well.. errmm.. I am really new to fish so I dunno what to do either. My fish is a little stressed out because he's not used to his new home yet, and he has a little ick on his tail. Its nothing compared to that though!

thanks everyone its even more upsetting because Zeus finally finished growing his tail back from nasty fin rot and Blaze had almost finished growing his back from when the filter ate it one night.

Now all my hard work is gone to waste Oh well. Now I can nurse them back to health and watch them heal up again

There both not doing good at all though.. Just laying on their floating plants with laboured breathing and they haven't moved for half hour now.
