If his Pectoral is gone then definitely lower the water level so it is easier for him to breathe. Did his fin fall off or rip off by decos?

Bettas breathe from the surface of the water with a unique organ, so adding an air pump to the tank isn't necessary since they don't need oxygenated water. :)

@ Misters hehehe you are correct.

Odd to have a pectoral fin go missing. I am either missing something or not thinking clearly, other then the fin missing, is there anything else going on with him? Sorry.. so tired right now. If it is just a fin, he will grow back, just keep the water clean (keep on your regular water change schedule) and he should be okay. As mentioned before, if he is having trouble swimming to the surface, lower the water to about 4 inches or so to make it easier on him. Stress coat will help promote fin growth, so if you have any you can add that in, but it's not necessary. Poor Ice!

Only thing that I'm worried right now is if the pectoral fin is ripped from the base or it's just a little bit fell off. Because if it pulled off all the way from the base, then it takes way longer to recover. And the pectoral fins are kinda important :(
