Piece of my Betta's fin has been cut off!

He's a crowntail, and he somehow managed to get just one of the spikes cut off of his fin just now. No idea how it got cut off by a soft, silk plant, but it did. That's where I found it, stuck to the softest plant I could find in the store.


Now, should I treat him with anything or not? I would use salt baths, but he isn't very tolerant of salt, any amount seems to stress him. Or would keeping his water clean be enough.

Alrighty then. x3


I have some Bettafix on hand... so I'll add some of that in if I don't see it growing back soon. I hope he'll be alright, he's really been through a lot. D:

rb500 - Yuuki said they can't do salt baths because the fish freaks out and doesn't handle salt well.
