I Just got back from a week long vaccation and I noticed that my newt only has one finger on it's left front
foot. My mom was feeding my fish when I was gone and the only thing that I can think of is that my female
betta ate off it's toes. That is the only other thing in the tank other then an apple snail. The fish are fed twice
a day. Would the betta eat the newt's toes? What should I do? And what should I do so it heals well? My
sister did a 50% water change today? I feed it red worms (They look like small thin earthworms) because
it's the only thing it will eat. I have aqua salt and stress coat. Should I add it?
I forgot to add. It is in a half full 10 gal with chip type gravel that is compltely covered with water. It also
has one of thos orange/white rocks with a hole in it. There is also a suction cup thermometer turned
sideway so the newt can sit on it. The wound looks rather fresh. The flesh is a pinkish-white

Also what else can I feed it? I tried crickets and it doen't eat them I have also tried FD blood worms and fish flakes, which is what my betta eats, but it doesn't like any of that.

Thanks for the help
