I have a male betta fish in a 11ish gallon tank and today I bought 2 male guppies to put in there with him, there's plenty of hiding places and live plants so I thought it would be fine but I've come home and one of the 2 has his dorsal fin bitten off (I'm assuming) and his tail is shredded almost completely. I've taken both of them out and put them in separate tanks and I've added some aquarium salt and a little leaf for him to sit on. little guy is trying to swim around but keeps falling to the bottom. not sure if he's gonna make it but is there anything that I get get for him??

Well, he does find his balance by his tail. If that's torn too much, he could have a problem of keeping his balance. This could result that he's gonna have problems finding his food at the surface. Which could make him starve. Be sure, that some food will dwell to the bottom. But if he does have problems to come to the surface, he'll also have problems to seek oxygen.
