Fin regrowth?

About how long does it take for a betta's fins to start regrowing after fin rot? Colt McCoy Fish has been getting Maracyn 2 for a week now; I figured I would do it for 10 days total. His fins haven't gotten any worse, but they don't appear to have grown any more, either. Am I being too impatient? I just want him to be healthy!

(I tried giving him salt baths, but for some reason they stressed him out so much that once I put him back in his tank he would hide for the rest of the day. So I just added a little salt to his tank. He's pretty active and eating ravenously, like usual. )

bluey once split his fin and it grew back within 2 days, surprisingly. but when crumb lots the tips of his fins to fin rot, they never grew back. :( and he split his anal fin a few weeks ago. it tried to grow back and then split again and now i think it's permanently torn. so i don't have a straight answer. i've seen them grow back and i've seen them not grow back. anyone else know for sure?

2 of the males in my divided tank got to eachother on Tues night, and I'm already seeing a teeny bit of regrowth on them. It's going to take a while for them to regrow, and they might not even regrow fully. Just be patient :)
