So I had my 2 favorite males in a divided 10 gallon. The divider is super sturdy, right? Well came home to find Cai on Tiberius's side, completely torn up. Half of his fins gone, patches of scales missing.
I am completely distraught. Of course it's my 2 favorite boys and not one of the other 5 boys in the divided 20 L. Tiberius has a few fins missing but nothing a little TLC won't fix. Cai is now in a 5 gal barebottom tank. He is doing well, acting normal. He just looks so horrible it hurts to look at him.
I'm so mad cause I feel like it's my fault, but he must have jumped, the divider was secure. Now I'm scared to have bettas in a divided tank anymore, which is just great for my 5 boys in a 20 L. I'm just not wanting anymore fish until I know I can keep them alone, it's just not worth it. Wow, I'm just so blown away since I haven't had a divider problem in so long. I'm just treating with Aquarium Salt and clean water for now. I think that is the best remedy. Plus a close family friend, and neighbor has had some law trouble we found out about today, and on a day we tried to celebrate my dad's birthday because he is out of town tomorrow. Ugh. Any suggestions for helping Cai get better is appreciated. Just had to get this off my chest.
