Not freeze dried, they can cause bloat but yes the frozen blocks of bloodworms is perfect

Oh yeah I don't do freeze dried for my bettas for the same problem. Frozen and thawed only.

Yep that's perfect, just make sure to watch him eat. And only feed at dinner time since they're nocturnal. And if you feed before bed give yourself about an hour to feed and watch him then remove leftovers. Also watch him so he doesn't overeat. His tummy will bulge on the left side.
Again cup your Betta boy

So I woke up this morning and one of my guys is missing a front flipper and his back flipper on the same side looks white and torn!? Could this be from the filter? :<

Oh my goodness! It is a possibility - they're not in with the betta right now, are they? I've read that some betta can be aggressive toward the frogs. My frog had a filter accident when he was new to me, and one of his flippers is torn now, but he seems well. Do you have pictures of him? Is he okay?!

No they are by themselves for a while until I know they're not carrying any diseases. They're in a 5.5 gallon. He seems alright as he is moving, but he is not using his back flipper :(

Its raining and dark here and the tank is away from sunlight, but I'll see if I can snag a picture.

It sounds like a filter accident to me :(
Also to reinforce the comment above about mean Bettas, watch them closely when ou put them with the Betta! I put my ADF with jaws and he picked on my ADF relentlessly, biting him, chasing him, more biting. D:

No, Wolfie - if he's okay, just let him be - pictures aren't necessary. You know the rules - keep the lights dimmed so he feels comfortable and can rest. Keep a CLOSE eye on him - and the filter. After my frog had his accident, he was very weak and I had to baffle the filter suction quite a bit to keep him clear of it. Keep an eye out for any redness in the area. . . he still has all of his toes? Can you tell if anything looks broken? If he's still swimming, it sounds like you're okay. Just try to minimize his stress as much as possible over the next few days and keep a sharp eye on him - for as tiny as these little guys are, they're tougher than they look!
