Question Fin regrowth

Hey guys, will BettaFix help treat fins that have been half eaten?? I know it's good for finrot.... I've been putting it in Rosalie's isolation tank. Her fins are pretty chewed up... how long will it take for regrowth to start???

i think healing time always depends on the damage and the individual fish. its immune system. you usually see the nipped part start turning clear at first. ive had a few females not get their color back in a few nip spots though. stayed clear..........anyone else?

I am not buying into this whole BettaFix thing. Seems like a gimmick and I have heard (correct me if wrong) that it isn't too fabulous for their labyrinth organ. When it comes to tissue regrowth this is what I recommend"

Frozen/Live Bloodworms: They're packed with protein, which is essentially what the betta is made of lol.
Aquarium Salt: Keeps electrolytes up and boosts immune system, sort of like Gatorade for fish.
Stress-Coat: Formulated to increase mucous production, guarding the open tissue from infection.
Clean Water: To prevent infection
Warm Water: Boosts metabolism and speeds up healing process.

Thanks for the advice everyone!


She's clear anyway... so I don't know about the color thing.

i believe anyone with bettas should be doing what kelly said, everyday for their fishes environment, not just for tissue regrowth

I believe that its best to avoid using meds if you can but sometimes you have to resort to using them if the problem is severe enough.
