My female Betta, who up until 4 days ago was very happy in my community tank. Then I saw that she must have been attacked by another fish. Her fins were torn and her caudal fin was down to almost nothing. I have moved her to a tank of her own. She is active, eating, and chilling. I have been treating her water with Bettafix. My question is will her fins grow back and how long does it take. When should I expect to see some improvement?

Keep the water clean and warm, daily partial water changes will help.

I think her fins will grow back but will take about a month till its back to normal. No more being in a community, bettas aren’t meant for communities. Peaceful bottom feeders or no tank mates IMO.

Aw the poor baby they will grow back but I wouldn't recommend bettafix long term, clean water is best.

Thank you so much for such timely responses! I test her water a change accordingly every day. I was going to use the bettafix for 7 days. What about Dr Tim’s First Defense or API Stress coat ... or simply water changes?
