Tail Biting?

Hay guys!!

One of my fish in the community tank was picking on Casanova and I didn't notice until too late. :( It was a guppy- weird!!! Anyways, his fins are all shredded and I feel terrible, I'm getting him a new tank Monday (he's in a medium kritter keeper right now) . Anyway, how long do you think it will take him to regrow them completely? My girl's fins seem to regrow over night!! (Only very slight tears, they're new to the tank) Anyway, would you recommend me get some kind of medicine to prevent infection/speed regrowth? They've got red spots on the ends of the hurt parts. :( Please help, I need to know by early Monday!

Yeah you can add some aquarium salt to his tank. It does both, prevent disease and helps regrowth. You should be able yo get it in any pet shop really. Good luck!
