What a sad day :( pk vs dragon

So today I went to 6 LFS to check out all there bettas, none had any interesting one beside the last one I went to I found a red dragon with only 1 eye. Anyways I came home first thing I looked at was my 10 gal divided tank and the first thing that I said was where is baby! (pk) next thing you know it he was on there other side flaring down dragon while dragon was under the heater seemed like he was done so I netted baby back to his side I examined dragon he was hurt top fin wis half way gone and has alot of rips and couple of the scales where missing but baby had nothing on him but a few little rips. So now dragons in a one gallon hospital. So some how baby got under the divider he lifted it up i guess with a cm gap cant blame him he was a energetic one. But at the end of the day I sold baby and Sunkist to my little cousin. I'm going to be selling my solid apricot color betta (if anyone is in the Seattle area I'll sell him to you for a steal) so now I'm just going to go buy a black half sun betta an cycle another tank for dragon if he heals.

Pictures of the fins couldnt get any good shots he doesn't want to open up all the way anymore-



He got mad at me for taking pictures


And the missing scales-


And here is the one eye dragon I seen sorry couldn't get a good shot he was missing the right side eye-

When I read your post I prepared myself for a shredded up betta..He doesn't look too beaten up aside from a few scales missing and his tail ripped up a bit..Sad you had to sell your other betta's.

I let the water temp adjust to the new tank I wouldn't shock him like that haha but yeah it's not as bad but he was under the filter on his side, even before the fight he seemed weak. When I got him from a LFS he was always at the bottom and wouldn't move unlike the others bettas there that's why I bought him he was getting better until today. Sucks really. If you guys where wondering the fish tank he was in is cycled, heated and filter and the temp is 78. 15-20% water changes where done ever week no fish ever died in it beside 1 ghost shrimp lol.

Abby- the 1 gallon he was in just before he died just had sponge filter because the room he was in is heated spare room for my other fishes. the thermometer in the tank was at 80 in my room it was 78 so in a hour it reached 80
