Sadly my darn IALs never came in >:( They refunded. But I don't have them. I have...teak tree leaves... which harden scales and burn fat?

I always give them a heavy variety of protein foods, like mealworm meat, bloodworms, pellets, and anything else :)

I was worried about salt xD It'd be like me putting a huge cut into a bucket of vinega (mind blows out from freaking out from imagining the pain) x_x

Oh, OK. And make sure it's Decaf. Or at least that's what I've heard... O.O

If you can't get a hold of tannins, then I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Clean water should do the trick, but just keep an eye out for infection. Since it's a divided tank I wouldn't use salt since you would be treating your other betta unnecessarily.

When my female, Sabino, had a huge hole in her side the first thing I used was aquarium salt (But this developed overnight when she was cupped so it wasn't from a decoration). She didn't act like the salt bothered her at all, so I wouldn't stress too much if you do end up having to use salt for an infection.

Since you're feeding a wonderful diet for healing, I would just stick to clean water and lots of down time. Tannins can come later when you can get them.

I sure will :3 I've just...never dealt with this before. The last female with a huge open wound was tadpole sized Sarah who had a hole where her dorsal was...But because of her weakened immune system I couldn't do much for meds.
