one of my reds was bit. A dime sized patch of skin(or scales, whatever...) got torn off near the dorsal fin. It reavealed this pinkish flesh underneath which looks undamaged.

so it looks like he/she wasn't bit that deep, but the top layer of skin(?) got torn off.

do i have to add salt? is it likely it'll heal properly if i don't?

thanks

If it isnt too bad, the fish should be fine. I would add salt and melafix, and it should heal over just fine.

btw: this is my 3000th post.
