Goldiemom Has Torn Caudal Fin!

My Betta has more of a split down center of causal fin. I think he caught it on the thermometer because I caught him going around it. I removed it. The fin also looks a bit tattered on some it’s edge. Tha tank is kept clean and is cycled. Parameters are all good, 0,0, and 10.Should I just keep him in clean warm water and watch? I have aquarium salt but heard that betta’s don’t tolerate it well. Help, please!

I personally would just keep an eye on him and do more frequent water changes (regardless of readings ... fresh water is always good). If I see something developing, then I would start to treat.

Thanks so much! That was my gut feeling but since I’m new with bettas I wanted to check.

Isn't it amazing how bettas will find anything and everything possible to cut up their fins on? I swear every time I think I've removed "the danger item" from my betta Dart's tank he still winds up with new fin rips. Before long all that'll be left in his tank is water.
