Yeah my Spartan's fins started to curl, since they are healing from being chewed off by a frog :) it's like a scar to us.. It'll be there because something healed!

True, but I wasn't recommending the salt for the curling so much as the "flaking off" of the fins. Curling doesn't go away usually, it's just there, but if the fins are falling apart then that's a different matter all together.

Yup lol. Only use the salt if fin rot appears :) even then clean water usually is the best bet :)

Thank you for all your help guys I appreciate it!=) So let me get this strait... So I know I have it in my head the right way lol... So as far as curling goes that is just regrowth. And for flaking of his tail put him in a small tank and do AQ salt for 10-14 days and a few drops of stress coat for the same amount of time and do 100% daily water changes. And if possible get the little tank to float on the inside of the regular tank. Did I get that all right? I just want to get it all strait in my mind, so I won't mess anything up lol.

That's about right :) I have a couple curly-end bettas, and although to us it looks bad to them it doesn't bother them :p Yeah you want a container you can float, to keep the temperature about the same. I've used a half gallon (half dose) and a gallon container before. You can suction cup it, or something, to the side to keep it from floating away on you!

Stress coat at full dose, or a few drops with your regular water conditioner.

But again, honestly, I don't see fin rot. If you see a lot of black edges that are flaking off, then definitely do the treatment.

Awesome guys thanks! Thank you all for being patient with me! But I have one more question, (sorry, I just have SO many things going on that my brain is not cooperating!) The "flaking" of his tail is worse I just started treatment today so it probably happened during the time he was not being treated but there are A LOT MORE holes in the tail and it is freaking me out!! should I just continue what I am doing?

I would recomend some Indian Almond Leaves. It may turn your water a "tea" color but its a natural chemical called Tannin which is released from the leaves and will soothe your betta and help regenerate the fins.
