baaad news

I came home to find Chance on Rowan's side dead. He jumped through a little area behind the filter. It was probably about the smallest gap possible, but I checked the divider and that's the ONLY place it could have been.
He didn't go without a fight though, Rowan is in really bad shape. His fins are all torn up, some of his scales are missing, he's breathing hard, and he's not moving much. I put him in a 1 gallon kritter keeper with a heater and some bettafix. Since I found him I haven't seen much improvement. :/
Anything I can do for him to help?

Oh no!!!!!!!! That really stinks!

I think you've done everything you can for Rowan already. Maybe put a dark cloth over his tank so he stays calm. He's probably really freaked out.

So sorry about Chance!

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry!!! I would just keep him in extra clean water for right now and if he doesn't show any signs of improving then you can medicate him.

Rowan is gone too. :(
I think it was a combination of injuries and shock.
RIP Chance and Rowan
