Hey guys! I have a dumbo betta that's a tail biter and his tail is healing fantastically, but when I bought him I noticed that he may have chewed one of his pectoral (dumbo ear) fins. Do dumbo betta pectoral fins grow back? I haven't seen any new tissue forming at all.

I had a dumbo and he used to shred his pectorals quite badly on any rough surface in the tank. I notice many dumbos with the same problem, as I think perhaps the pectorals are more delicate than the other fins.

Pectorals will heal and grow back provided the damage isn't too extensive (my dumbo male managed to almost tear his pectoral completely off at one point), but I found it can be quite a slow process.

Feeding lots of high-protein foods, and keeping the water clean and warm, is about all you can do to encourage regrowth.
