well... first you will need some aquarium sealant......
just kidding, it will heal quickly as long as you keep your water warm and clean

depends on the length of the rip. my veil tail once ripped it from end to end along the rays. it took four days to reaseal pretty much the entire way.

High protien foods will help too... if you can get your hands on live brine shrimp that will really help! If not, OK! It will heal its self.

How often should I feed the brine shrimp? Also will FD blood worms by hikari work?

Freeze dried foods are okay but can cause constipation. Bloodworms should only be fed one ONCE a week because of this and the fact that they are mostly betta junk food.
