Ripped Fins

My male betta has recently been transferred to his new home, and I think one of the plants has ripped his tail fin twice. I took out the plant and he seems to be fine...but how do I speed up his healing process? He only has two rips about half a cm. There is no blood and they seem like a clean cut. I feel terrible and want to help him so any help is greatly appreciated!

temporarily home him in a small container to reduce activity. Then place him in a dark room. He will go into a state wherein his system slows down and he will rest. All his energy will then be focused on recuperating. Do regular water change and feeding.

Clean, warm water is all he needs. :) High-protein foods will also help the healing process.
