It should..however, it depends on how badly the slime coat was damaged....especially if you touched him without wetting your hands first....but usually they will be fine....just watch that area and if it start to look fuzzy...increase the the salt to 2tsp/gal...the salt will help him make slime/mucus the fish natural protection....

what is the longest it'll take to FULLY grow back his tail? and average? also when you says it may not be as nice as before, what will be different from his old tail?
He also seems to be doing good now he's swimming and eating and stuff :)
Thanks!

Would you be able to post the before and after pictures up? My betta anal fin had a large segment that got broken off from his jumping stunt and it immediately tried to "fix" itself by fusing it. So I guess it depends on how it's damaged as well as all the reasons OFL gave.

Ouch......its hard to tell...but did the injury go beyond the fins.....

I had a Betta get his tail chopped off by a marble crayfish and it took about 30 days for full regrowth-the tail did look somewhat off color...but it did grow back.....I started with a 10 sodium chloride 2tsp/gal, tannins, water change and then 10 days freshwater, tannins, water changes-then 10 day magnesium sulfate 2tsp/gal, tannins, water changes......really good nutrition mainly live food and homemade food.....

The cut looks pretty clean-how did it happen exactly......

Hehe...OFL...you got tricked too! That's actually the "before" picture which was the healthy one...he will be posting the "after" picture later. the tail was bent behind the body so can't see it, but doesn't it look like it's been chomped off neatly? lol

Haha I was wondering how a betta had managed to do that to itself.

My male's tear went right down to his body, but it's about halfway healed now. He was healing from previous damage (when I purchased him he had very severe fin rot), but even when the colour has filled in, you can tell where the new growth has started as there are slight ripples in the rays and it has a more ruffled look.
