His fins are fully grown, they just grew in horribly deformed (as expected with such severe fin loss)... he is adorable though!

Oh my God! How did he not drown?!

You did an awesome job, yet again! What did you do to get his fins to grow back so quickly and vividly?

I have NO idea, I first saw him and I though he was dead... then he started flipping violently at the surface (SBD so he was floating) once I got him home I stuffed his tank with plants to keep him afloat... but he already had it all worked out (he swam more like a tadpole, flapping around and wedging hisself in between things to rest)

Pure chance really, I had him and my first drastic boy (Hercules) on high concentrates of AQ salt (2 tsps of per gallon of water) along with 100% daily water changes every day and API water conditionor + stress coat, Hercule's fins are STILL growing and they grew with wierd kinks... Finn's fins grew off and stopped.... my more recent drastic boy I only used the AQ salt for the first day.... and his fins have grown in MUCH better (I'll have his updates posted ASAP, lol)
The color was all him, he was stressed out constantly when I first got him, now that he can swim easy he has colored up and is actually a very mellow boy (does not get stressed easy) so he has the honor of being in the kitchen (warmest part of the apartment)
