He need some Betta Max and a raise in temperature for a while until until until he heales . Most medications work best at about 82 degrees. aai know it says no raise is needed but it does work faster if it work faster if it has a raise to the proper temp.

Red tails dont have teeth though and generally like to just chase or whack with the side of the head

Good Point! But they're generally not nippers their mouths are more suited to grazing algae

One of my cichlids had what looked like a bite mark on his flank.
It was far too big to have actually been a bite mark though, as nothing in the tank has a mouth that big.

Is it possible he snagged on one of your decorations?



I treated mine by upping the temperature to 82 and using Melafix for 10 days. You can't even see where the injury was now
