Unhappy Injured betta!

King Dedede is injured! some dude I invited to my b-day party (named Justin) started to injure my betta! here's the story my friend, Ilia told. "so, Justin picked up the net, and started hitting King Dedede on the chest, then, King Dedede bumped into the filter harshly, almost getting sucked in! then, Justin started hitting King Dedede on the head. That's when you came in and saw Justin with the net in the water." I'm really worried! small parts of tail and fins have been torn off and King Dedede acts really confused... he looks so weak and helpless now... can someone please help me??

What size of tank is he in? I would lower the water level to allow him to be able to reach the surface. If you can, remove the filter as well and maybe just add a bubbler for some surface movement. Depending how hard he was hit, he could have internal damage and there may not be any hope, however you can still try and at the very least make him comfortable.

How is he acting exactly? Spiral swimming, gasping, spazzing, floating, clamped fins, etc...?

5 gallon and okay. my friend said King Dedede got slapped super hard. he's clamped and is swimming in spirals, there's gasping and... that's pretty much all there is.

EDIT: what's spazzing?

EDIT 2: What is a bubbler?

Also, I think the best you can do is to keep him warm around 80, and give him quiet time to recover. One of my kids at school cupped my Nebula rather roughly up the side of the aquarium and he was bent for a bit and we were worried, but he did recover.

And Justin would not be my friend anymore!

I'm sorry to hear that Justin treated King Dedede so poorly. >:(

Spazzing means to be moving/swimming spasmodically, and a bubbler, I think, adds oxygen to the water and acts kind of like a filter.
