torn finns

Hi All, I have a beautiful neon blue VT called Bob that got stressed new years day and shreaded his tail on the plants in his tank (now removed) Will his finns grow back or should i change his name to scruffy. Thanks Brita

As long as finrot doesn't set in, the fins should regrow. To help prevent finrot, make sure you keep his water extra clean. You might also consider some aquarium salt, though it may not be necessary if the water is kept clean. If there is abnormal black edging to the fins and they are decaying/deteriorating further, then you may have finrot, though it can be treated with aquarium salt or medication in serious cases. Hopefully you won't have that problem, though. Good luck with him!
