My betta has always nibbled his tail but recently during moving to my new apartment.. his tank was knocked over and he was on the ground. My boyfriend loves this fish and I love all my betta like children so we freaked out. He grabbed the fish as gently as possible- super slippery- and got him back in his water. After this I noticed some small wounds on his tail. I've monitored him and made sure to keep the tank clean and warm... I'm horrified to put aquarium salt in the tank but I've read that a lot of people say to do it.
10g tank, 2 1/2inch betta and 3-4inch pleco girl, filtered and lit, 75degrees. He eats pellets and has bloodworms once a week. Hes fat and eats pleco food so I space days between feedings. I don't have a ph kit and never have, probably never will... I don't get it u_u
But what should I do?? Vday my fish will be one year with us. He's a part of the family and I don't want him suffering.
