Torn fins

I'm pretty much of a newbie here and have a question. Is there anything you can do to help a betta heal torn fins? I have a new boy that I was supposed to just babysit, but you know how things like that go and the poor little guy has torn fins because the dingbat put him in with another boy. He seems depressed and not eating-thanks for any help!

The best things you can do are clean, warm water. I would whack the temperature up to 82-85 for a couple of weeks. Adding IAL, if you have it, may help comfort him, as many StressCoat. Neither are necessary, though.

That's so cruel - why can't people think before acting? :(
