Lebron lost some Scales... Help?!

Lebron lost some of his scales from his head... :\ I should be doing a AQ Salt treatment, correct? I mean, this is an external problem so I should be able to do this... I will cure him in his cup that he came in and float the cup in the tank as I have no other tanks than this is one... Advice? I have no IAL or oak leaves so that's off. :\

Is it possible he could've scraped them off by accidentally banging his head on a decoration? That may be why they fell off. Not sure really how to help, but my betta lost a scale because he liked jamming himself between a wall and filter and hit the scale the wrong way, so that may be why Lebron lost a few himself.

Maybe... I asked Olympia about it and she said that decorations might not be strong enough to scrape them off. :( Your Betta should be fine, Lebron has PATCHES missing! It actually does sound like he hit his head. You know when you bump into something and when your skin rubs against each other with the thing, there's always a layer of skin in between the next wound with the other? It looks like that but still...

Yeah, I mean bettas are known jumpers. He may have tried to jump his tank while you weren't looking and nailed his head hard off of the lid? All I can do to explain it is the theory he hit his head on something, the scales usually don't just come off even when sick as far as I know =/
