The treatment you are doing now should take care of it...

I can't tell by the photo if he has any new growth...I wouldn't do anything for the fin piece that fell off or hanging off....it should drop on its own in time.....have patience...it going to be a long road with that amount of damage....

Do you still think it will grow back?

P.S. That little piece of tail fell of during his 4th out of 10th water change :)

It should. My male bettas have torn absolute shreds off each other when dividers had failed, and there have been rays snapped and bits of fins hanging loose.

However, they managed to grow back within a couple of months. While you could sort of tell there had been damage, it still looked reasonably normal.

I have found any damage to the anal fin takes longer to heal than the caudal, but once a tail starts showing signs of regrowth, it generally progresses fairly quickly after that.

It will for sure, as LBF said, maybe not in its full glory, but it will. :D Even if there is the tiniest bit of fin left, it will grow..
