New boy... missing half of tail

I got a new little guy from the pet store. I have put him in a 5g, filtered, heated to 79 degrees tank with one snail tank mate.

He is swimming around, checking out his new pad, eating ok, still a little clamped (I just put him in this morning).

The problem is that my poor boy is missing half of his tail (i got him this way) Is there anything that I can do to help it grow back?

Thanks!

keep his water as clean as you can. it should grow back on it's own, with no help at all, but if you want to help it alot, get some Indian Almond Leaf. something in the leaf, a chemical, helps scales and fins grow back, and he'll love it. you don't need to add anything, though.
