Oh dear! I learned that lesson myself the hard way, which is why I mentioned it to you. And when my betta tore his fins on one of those evil plants, I kept aquarium salt in the tank and it seemed like it had healed. But then he got stressed being moved to a new tank and now he has fin rot.

So be careful! I would put aquarium salt in his water if I were you.

If there comes a point you feel you need to use salt, go to the grocery story & get canning or kosher salt. They do the same thing as aquarium salt at a fraction of the price.

they don't need a plant, but it is highly highly recommended. who knows, maybe when you're out or sleeping , your betta's caatching some ZZZ's under the plant. And whenever you do see him out and swimming, he's hyper.? hah Mine is like this, at night when i wake up sometimes, i turn the dim light on and see him chilling on the plants when he barely ever goes to it during the day.
