Hello all. I've kept bettas off and on since I was a kid, but trying to get a little deeper knowledge on it all. Right now I have my big plakat, Caesar, a small female wild type, Monkey, (the kids named her) and a male pink pastel, Princess (my daughter's).
Monkey and Caesar are doing great, but Princess is the troubled child. One of the kids at my daughter's slumber party snuck out and dumped a bunch of food in the water and stuck her hand in the tank trying to grab the decorative rocks and injuring the fish. I managed to save her after a 100% water change, but "she" lost a good sized portion of her tail and suffered swim bladder issues afterward. She's hanging in there and any helpful advice on how to speed her recovery would be appreciated.
My main focus for all three is water quality and twice weekly doses of melafix for Princess, trying to prevent infection and promote regrowth of her fins.
I look forward to hearing from the community and hope to find a supportive group as I work my way into all this.
