Exclamation spitting tail?!

Okay so a week ago i noticed the spectrum had a straight tear in his tail fin and there are NO sharp plants in the tank and he is eating regularly and fairly active. ( he is a funny sleeper though and just LOVES scringg his mama to death! He wedges himself between the glass stones...) ANYWAYS, now i notice ANOTHER straight spit! HELP? I dont want to do anything that will stress him out though...

Is it possible he blew his fins? HMs are very prone to it. Blowing their fins means they flare so much that they split their fins. Add some salt to the water and keep the water very clean. :)

i too scared to add salt to his water after what happened to midnight... ( the night after i added it he died...) Would 1 salt bath a day suffice?

yes, salt baths would defiantly help

My betta, Caesar, is a super spazzy fish and he's always get his fins torn and split.
Just the day before yesterday he got two splits in is tail fin that went almost to his body, but it's already halfway healed just from doing a full tank change and adding salt.
