Why did you move the betta from a ten to a one gallon if the tank mates are gone and no other stress is happening pristine water conditions will help her heal and no adding other fish till she is healed what are your parameters and tank mates

Also a harem will work but not in a ten gallon for a harem you need at least 6-7 females and at least 35g or larger

Rite now there's 3 hi fin platys 3 neon tetras and 2 tiger sword tails. It's a 10 gallon I took her out bc she was having trouble swimming and keeps getting stuck in the bubble wall. Once I moved her she's swimming fine now minus being a lil lol sided lol

Hmm I'm going to say probably platys and swordtails did it also that is some hood sized fish you have for a ten I would look into a 5g just for your betta
