New betta has a torn fin

I just bought a another betta from petco a few days ago and he has a rather large rip in his fin. It's more of a chunk missing really. I just couldn't stand to leave him at the store and risk him getting fin rot...he's a beautiful half moon betta (I named him Asteroid). It looks like he has some new growth on the tear but, I'm wondering is there anything I can do to help it heal faster?

Fresh clean dechlorinated water set to 80-82 will help...

Also when in his main tank, be sure not to have sharp decorations or plastic plants in there.

Good Luck :)

Hmm, give it some time...

Betta's tails heal like magic!!! Fallen Leaves lost his entire tail once. a month later, half of it is back. :)
