Wait wait wait. Can we have a picture? Are her fins really torn up or are there just a few nips?

How long did you condition the two for, and with what kind of food? What size tank are they in? Temperature of the tank? Were there hiding places for the female?

As you can see it is pretty bad
it was a couple weeks ago when it happened they are apart now.
I conditioned her for 2 weeks and a couple days
The heat was around 80-82
The tank size is a 20gal long it was half full with water
And the right was side all the way full with java moss and other plants.

I've seen worse, which is good- it's not that bad, really- good job at removing her...

Give her a tsp of aquarium salt per gallon for five days or so. How big is her tank?

clean water and AQ salt. make sure you dont add additional salt unless you are doing a water change. remember salt doesnt evaporate! i would also try not to let her flare for these few days, dont want her to rip them again on accident!

Don't worry about it, really- you can do daily waterchanges with her and a tsp of aquarium salt for five days. In a 1 gal it'd be much easier.

also proper nutrition when you're trying to regrow fins. A high protein diet will help with that. Try giving her live or frozen food for one of her meals

If ever needed could you replace API melafix for the AQ salt? I saw the melafix is for damaged fins. I have both products on hand, i just put one of my females from my sorority into a QT with AQ salt and fred her but i was curious if the melafix would ever work if i didnt have AQ salt
