Okay well I can buy him some stress coat then.
And yeah, the spot on his head is like a white sort of fleshy color, and also I noticed the color on his sides are a bit lighter, and under one of his pectoral fins. So I read the reviews on a heater and it said that for a 6 gallon tank the temp. was up to like, 76 degrees. Well Venus is only in a 3 gallon, so I'm worried that it might over heat the water, especially since the tank is only half full right now. And Venus has never had a heater and is probably rather used to room temperature or below, so it might be a little freaky for him... so does anyone know of one for a smaller tank?

He looks like he's mending just fine. In a couple weeks you won't even know he was hurt. I'm so glad! :D

Hi again everyone! I bought him a heater on Sunday, the Tetra Whisper Heater..
He seems to like the warm water... on my thermometer it's at about 75...
But I noticed something bad... I mean , I'm not really really concerned... but it's not good. He was a rip/hole in one of his pelvic fins... It's like a thin little slit... I'm sure it will heal over time but I'm kinda nervous... that was not there before...

Fin tears are a common non-serious betta injury. My halfmoon, Nero, ripped one of his fins flaring at me soon after I got him. It took less than a week for it to heal. Just continue keeping the water clean, and it should mend pretty quickly.

If you have plastic plants or anything else sharp in your setup, that can snag and tear fins. Otherwise, it's probably nothing connected to the major injury he just suffered, and it's probably not serious either.
