hey guys- so upset today. I was out for a lot of the day and came home to find my betta laying on top of the filter output sponge (I have a fluval spec v and use a sponge to reduce the flow of the filter). He was still under the water.. thank god. But just barely. After making noise and moving the sponge slightly I realized he couldn't get down on his own. So I removed the sponge and let him into the water. However he is injured... I think from trying to get himself down after getting stuck up there. When he got back into the tank he was not using his right pectoral fin at all a few hours later he is back to using it but is still not as spunky as he was. Which is understable considering the injury. I am worried. Seems like he's recovering though. I know what stress can do to a fish. This is my second betta and I feel like it's been nothing but problems with both that I've had. I know they are touted to be "beginner fish" but I find them to be very sensitive. I added another Indian almond leaf to the tank and a bit of stress coat. Anything more I can do for him to make sure he recovers well and without stress? I just did a tank clean and water change yesterday. Tank parameters are good... no ammonia or nitrites. I put the sponge back on the output but lowered the water level as I had done previously so he cannot get on top of the sponge. I will look into another way to modify the filter flow however after this incident. The only issue I have is a fungus on my driftwood ... which despite removing it from the tank and boiling it again... seems to be coming back. I feel like I am the Debbie downer of this forum... but it's been one problem after another since i started fish keeping. And I am a very OCD and careful person who does research... I don't know how the average person does this without issues.
