feed him garlic enriched food and he should be fine.....my tang got his tail fin sliced in half somehow I'm guessing my emerald snuck up on him while he was sleeping and grabbed hold of him....his fin grew back perfectly in three days ....and now my cardinals have fin damaged bc my hawk fish chases them but they are going to be fine as well. ....feed them flakes with garlic or you can soak your brine shrimp etc in the garlic juice and it will help their immune system and they will regrow GL
