yep add salt and keep an eye on it ,every now and them my larger reds kicked of with each other and fins do grow back as long as it has not gone passed the fin area ,contant fin nipping does lead to fins not growing back fully on of my old reds i had a few years ago had a much smaller tail fin than the other as he used to pick fights with the largest red and had lots of tail bites resulting in lack of growth at the 2 tips

Yea man I don't think his tail will grow back. If it was just the fin part then I would say no problem. But if the whole thing was ripped off and it is keeping him from swiming or living a normal life than I would seriuosly consider euthanizing him. Poor thing would even be able to catch it's own food.

My understanding is that fins grow back unless bitten into the meat. Even if the tail is totaly gone, if it is not taking into the meat, meaning past where the fin is attached to the body, it should grow back.
