My Bettas got in a fight how can I help them heal
I've been keeping 2 male bettas in a 5.5 gallon tank with a divider. Last night the divider moved just enough for one to get on to the other side. They probably fought for about a minute before I caught them and separated them. Both bettas have pretty tattered fins but were swimming around this morning and ate so I am hoping they are going to be okay. I've fixed the divider in hopes that this wont happen again but I was wondering if there is anything I can do to help them heal? I will be keeping the water extra clean. I've read mixed things about Bettafix and similiar products ... what do you think?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I would just try keeping the water extra clean for now and if things look worse in a few days, then you can medicate.
I agree with what dramaqueen said. As long as they are acting fine and are showing no signs of weakness, just keep the water extra clean and don't overfeed and such.
I also recommend using a black water extract in the tank; it better resembles their natural environment and is commonly used in breeding. Just a tip though :)

Keep the water extra clean, and add some salt and a little bit of Betta fix. They should be fine in no time!!!

If you cant find betta fix. There is another product called melafix. It is the same thing just stronger so you may want to dilute it a bit.
