tail fin nipped

Damian19

HI I just got this banggaI cardinal fish and today I noticed that its bottom tail fin was bigger then his upper tail fin.Its also a little reddish right where its body forms from its tail fin.Its in a 10 gallon quarantine tank with a nemo fish.What can I do to help it?It doesn't seem like its in a lot of pain but from the picture you can tell its upper tail fin is nipped a little bit.I got Melafix and stress coat.

the fin should grow back the melafix and stress coat and quaratine sounds perfect for the fish, just keep what you are doing and he should be fine, also is he tank raised or wild caught, tank raise tend to do better in aquariums than wild caught

The guy at the lfs told me that he was wild caught but the nemo fish is farm raised.
