Hole in fin

So Neptune, my half moon has a hole in his fin. I'm guessing it was from a decorational cave my mom handout in his tank. After noticing the hole,I took out the cave. After looking in each entrance and exit holes in noticed some sharp edges. This morning the hole tore, but it's not that big as the hole was right by the edges of the fin. There is no blood. What should I do?

Usually holes in fins indicate ammonia present in the water, or had an ammonia spike. Decorations tend to tear/rip.

Make sure to keep up on the weekly water changes (based off of the size of tank, filter, cycle, etc) and it should heal up fine.

I would just keep an eye on it and keep the water warm and clean. You should start to see some regrowth in a few days; of course, you will need to treat with meds if the fins start to deteriorate.

I do the water changes and keep the temp. warm. I will monitor it. His favorite spot to lay made his fin fight above a jagged piece.
