Hello again, I was at a petstore today looking at Bettas and spotted a betta that appears to be a dragonscale in a tank with over 30-40 guppys. The guppys were nipping at his fins. His fins are nipped all over. At first I thought he was dead but as a guppy came near him, he took off and was swimmimg pretty good. Anyway, one of the employees came over and asked me if I needed any help and I told her yes, I told her to look at the fins of the betta and she couldnt believe he was in there with all of them. I told her that I wanted him and she said I could have him for free so hes here in a 2.5 gallon tank. I just filled the tank with water, threw a heater in and put prime and stress coat in.
I acclimated him to the water and put him in. So far he is doing fine, he is swimming around real good and I fed him some frozen brine shrimp and he eats good.
Now I know it will take time for the fins to grow back but in the mean time is there anything I need to do other than keep doing water changes each day?
Also I forgot to add, I dont have a filter in the tank as of right now but with doing water changes each day do I really need one now?
