Yikes. Get that mirror out of there and give him a leafy silk plant or two for security. Poor thing.

A bit of salt would also help.

It took my betta about 2weeks to start to see regrowth, but it has accelerated since i added the IAL....a LOT!

it might take a while for the fins to grow back because they were long fluent fins. they were beautiful before but im sure they will grow back soon. get epsom salt that might work to and stress zyme or stress coat. and im sorry for your poor fish why do you hate him?

It takes quite a while. Once of my boys got over the divider in March and tore off most of my other betta's fins, and he's still in the process of growing them back. Still has a long way to go...

Edit: I just use aquarium salt though, I don't have IAL or katapang. Those owuld probably help speed up the recovery process.

yes it will take a while. Treat it with salt also put lots of plants so he feels secure and no mirrors and tapping on the glass. My bettas fins grew back in 4 days.
