When to move back into tank?

I've been treating my betta for fin rot with antibiotics for about 5 days now, and he's starting to become himself again (more active, no signs of rot on fins anymore). He's been moved out of his 10 gallon tank into a 2.5 gallon hospital tank since treatment, although there are no signs of rotting on his fins anymore, they are still not fully grown back.

When should I move him back into his 10 gallon, and when should I stop using the antibiotics and start focusing on regrowing his fins?(or will the antibiotics continue to do that?)

Thank you so much.

You should follow the instructions on the antibiotics you're using. You can do two rounds back to back as well.

He is in the clear when there are no more signs of fin rot and you see actual regrowth.
