Bad case of tail biting healing

How long will it take Romeo's tail to heal? I have been changing his 2.5 gallon almost every day and that isn't helping. Will a little bit of AQ salt help?

I have a really bad tail biter too

What helped him was his own 5 gallon, heated to 80F and filtered with a sponge filter. His tail is growing back wonderfully! I also have TONS of decorations in his tank, and I rotate them in and out and move them around about every 2-3week. This seems to be doing the trick!

Good luck.

He hasn't bitten his tail since moving to the 2.5. Hopefully he will be better soon
