    Hi OFL.

    Solar maimed 3 shrimps, the rest have know been moved into the community tank down stairs.

    How-ever He is still with 3 Endler Fry (they came free with the shrimps)...

    Which I wasnt expecting to last a night with him, almost a week later and their still there, and he still isnt bothering them..

    No idea how old they are, I'm feeding them really really small pieces of flakes, And Daphnia .

    But they keep stealing Solar's Betta flakes and pellets.. will it hurt them?

    They hide in the plants if Solar goes near, and Very very quietly zip to the other side of the tank out of they way, (they are way too fast for him)..

    Through his gills, but floating on the back is not a good sign sadly.....sometimes the injury can be worse than you think, you may want to lower the water level some and put the fish in a dark quiet place and hope for the best....but honestly it doesn't sound good.....

    Clean water and water changes for now is what I would do, depending on how bad the injury he may or may not recover

    I put fishy into a different tank, with fresh water, and aquarium salt, last time it took the swelling down in 24 hrs., hope it works this time. He is really puffy.

    It shouldn't.......but I would watch him for adverse reaction like you do with any treatment.
