Is it clamped to her side or is it just plain missing? It almost looks like it is missing. Did one of the other girls nip it? I would try aquarium salt to ward off infection, shallow water so she doesn't have to swim as hard, and a high-protein diet to encourage healing.

Wow, it looks bad but hopefully worse than it really is, especially since she can swim more or less normally. I can't quite tell, is it the longer fin down on her belly (pelvic or ventral) or the short fin (pectoral) on her side that she swims with? Silly girl, I wonder what happened. Definitely try the high-protein diet and aquarium salt, 1 tsp per gallon, for 10 days. It should grow back fairly quickly.

Why epsom salt? Is she bloating or having SBD issues? For fin injuries, it's aquarium salt. I hope she gets better, it looks painful.
