Oh no...

I came home and haruki had like jammed a place where the plastic divider slid out a little, and got into it with my new betta, who was already STRESSED...
I came home from school and found haruki stuck in between the crack and my new betta with pieces of his tail gone and like immobile and lazy O.O

He already won't eat for me.
Is there anything I can do for him to get him to eat (he hasn't since saturday when I got him) and help him get unstressed.

He isn't lively AT ALL, he is sulking and leaning against a plant leaf :(

Haruki has nips, but he is still all lively for me

What size is the tank and how much and how often are the water changes and when was the last one? what type of additives used and the water temp?

You may need to Qt all the males so that they cannot see each other and start make 100% water changes daily and fast for 3-4 days and get the temp up in the 80F area, turn off all lights and de-stress them

uhm water temp around 76 to 78, 10 gallon, and like 10 percents water change every day, but I don't add the top fin water conditioner for each of those times, I have only really put it in there the starting time. I added Aquarium fertilizer shortly after setting up the tank a while back.
I put them each in one gallon bowls, in the room that has no AC flowing through there, so it keeps them warm, and darkish,
So far all of them are absolutely fine, but that new betta.

If you are on city water you need to use the dechlorinator with any water added to the fish...otherwise you can poison them with the chlorine/chloramines

hmmm I don't think that is what is wrong, but thanks,
I was going to keep a gallon or two of pre chlorinated water to do everyones water.
I am about to clean out the tank, i really don't want to take chances.
The new betta is extremely lethargic, >.<
he is at the top of the water, just staying there all droopy o.o

Well I put them all in bowls, so I can redo the tanks.
He has perked up so much, and is flaring and swimming at the femle between them.
I just need him to eat.
Uhm wonder how to use garlic soaked food?
maybe that would make him eat.

Can you get him any live food? Perhaps something wriggling might pique his interest.

My fish isn't eating right now, either. Wish I could find some live food around here... :/
