Torn Fins

I have a halfmoon plakat EE with torn fins and tail and was wondering if they will ever grow back to the original state? And how long will it take? I'm using IAL to help with the healing.

If you are keeping the water warm & clean then his fins should grow back. How long it takes depends on how bad they are torn & how healthy the Betta is, but IME it doesn't take long to see new growth.

The tail was torn pretty bad... at least half of it gone :( Hopefully he'll recover soon.

My crowntail had some really bad tears/chunks missing and after 2 weeks, it's about halfway back to normal.

I've been double dosing stress coat and doing more frequent water changes.
