So my new female bettas have been in the same tank for a while now and not showing aggression, but today I came home and the little red girl was acting funny and upon closer inspection, her fins are a little torn and one of her pectorals is completely missing! She is showing typical stress signs (clamped fins, fast breathing, not moving much although she's still eating). I've removed her from the tank and she's in her own (too small 1gallon) tank for now.
I'm a little dismayed because I was planning on moving my 3 females into a 20 gallon this weekend and now I'm not sure they can get along! It's not a big deal if I have to separate them, but I wanted to have a sorority and now I'm concerned because there are only two of them in the tank (again, the tank is too small because it's temporary).
Should I treat her with anything? If so, what? Sorry if this is in the wrong area...I wanted to post it in" sorority" but there isn't a listing for that!
Ugh! Poor fish! I hope she lives...
