So Im getting my first rescue Betta on Thursday. He's a beautiful red male VT with blue/purple iridescent scales on his body.
He's been at the store that I have my female on order from for a few weeks now, & last week I noticed his dorsal fin is bitten off almost completely off & parts of his caudal fin are missing too.
I've been tossing over the thought of rescuing him & I've decided Im going to do it. Im bringing him home with me when I get my girl on Thursday.
So the question is, which is the best way to treat tail biting? I'll get him his hospital tank the same day as well. I dont really need a heater as its summer & the water temp is like 80 degrees. Im prepared to do daily water changes if necessary & I have API Stress Coat & Aquarium Salt handy.
But beyond all that Im really excited for my first rescue!
