Clumsy betta.....

First he scrapes himself on something and had a big hole in his side. Now he bumped his head on something and now has the same scar on his head. And there is nothing in his tank to scrape himself on. theres nothing but silk plants in his tank. so so so frustrating.

Ah I had a female get stuck in tank decor and made a big gash in her skin, her scale were completely off. I gave her some salt baths for a few days seemed to heal up well without infection I had to cut her out of the decor

Just keep his water clean, you could try some salt baths if you think there could be risk on infection.

He'll have to watch where he's swimming!

Yeah, Jamie. I agree, adding some aquarium salt may help.
