Ok, I had 2 of my bettas in a betta barracks (I know many people say that's too small, and inhumane, but it's all I can afford right now), and somehow, one of them managed to jump in with the other one, and obviously, they got in a fight. One of them died within a day, but the other seems to be doing quite well (except for a small patch of his tail fin that is missing). However, today (about 3 days later) I notice that there are little tiny worms in his compartment. I have put some baby mollies in the other compartment (where the other betta used to be), and there are no worms in there. I moved the barracks, and a few worms got in with the babies, and I notice they eat them, so I assume that's why there were no worms on their side. All that to ask this:
Are the worms bad for my betta, or is it some sort of worm that helps with the healing (like maggots do on an open wound)? Any insight would be appreciated, since I've never had an injured betta, and never seen worms in any of my tanks.

that! you're your own dude!!! Nah! i have no ideas to help but did you feed them live worm. Because sometime maybe the live worm can swim off and hide under gravel. This only happened when the fish cannot consume it all. Maybe this the problemos.

fin healer

The betta barracks came loose, cause I was messing with it, and so the baby mollies, and the wounded betta ended up switching sides. It looks like there's only a couple worms in with the betta now, but it's hard to tell since they are so tiny.
Since they won't help my betta heal, is there anything I could do to speed up that process, or will he be fine on his own?
