I have not really paid close attention to if he has been caught in the water when I've been adding it back in. I will make sure to be careful with that.
I just am not sure if it is possible that some of the plants might be doing it, since I've never kept a betta with live plants before and the spiralis looks really pointed at the tips right now.
