Hi

Wondered if anyone could help me bought Blaze three weeks ago has been doing well, today when i tried to get him out of the tank he got caught up in the net and was very stressed and hardly moved. Once i put him back in he seemed ok but ive noticed what appear to be patches on his head sure they wernt there before could he have been hurt am so worried about him as he dosnt seem as lively as usual.

He might still be pale from shock.
You shouldn't use regular nets with bettas as you can damage their fins.
You could cup him out of the tank or use a brine shirmp net.

He could of lost scales due to the struggle.. also, did you acclimate him to the new water, both chemistry and temp?

Not acclimating properly could cause shock...

Just keep his water warm and clean and he should heal up on his own- scales should grow back.

Thanx hes still not as active but has been swimming around, shall try the brine shrimp net as have had no luck getting him in the cup. Usually no probs with water changes just gettin him out of the tank i think he may be quiet young as hes very small will try to post a pic as also been concerned about fin rot up till today has been eating well and very active
