healing ripped fins

My betta has some torn fins which I believe are from his filter. I temporarily have a little mesh bag around the filter and I ordered a pre-filter sponge that I'm hoping will reduce the flow without causing cloudy water. I also added stress coat to the water. How long should it take for his fins to heal?

If water is kept pristine, probably 2 days you'll see some clear growth. When Lebron ripped his fin, the next day it healed. ^^"

As long as the water is kept very clean, his fins should be almost completely grown back within a week. Make sure you watch for bacterial or fungal infections on ripped fins, but just make sure his water is clean and you should be fine. Adding aquarium salt can speed up the process if you have some, if not it's not necessary.

My betta's loved to hurt themselves -.-... Think a plant is good, nope they find a way to rip their fins and leave me shaking my head.

As was said clean water so that it keeps away infection and all good to go. They will grow back!
