Torn fins?

My betta Pearl had a fake blue plant in his tank, and it was a little spiney looking. I think it tore of his back tail. One of the associates at the petsmart I work at told me I should try Bettafix by API. Do you know if it does help? He's been like think for about a month or maybe even two. I took out the plant and replaced it with a silk plant once it happened. Nothing is growing back. Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't like bettafix. It's a watered down version of Melafix and some people say the main ingredient is bad for Bettas. Also I believe bettafix is just an antiseptic so really it won't help a torn fin.

What will help is to keep his water really clean and warm. Adding some aquarium salt can help but isn't necessary.
