You don't add slime coat.. that is the substance fish create on their own on their bodies. Are you meaning Stress Coat? You can, but just making sure to keep up on your water changes is enough to keep away the rot, and the fin will grow on it's own. Usually a split will fuse within a week.

Stress coat, you mean? you can but it is not needed. I've had my girl Rose get a split fin (thanks, Madame!) and it's completely healed... no fin rot at all. Just keep the water clean for him and that should do :)
