Not much except ensure the other tank mates do not pick on the injured damsel. That in most cases is the biggest concerns. If you have a cycled QT I would remove the damsel and give it some alone time to heal. If not be absolutely sure you keep the water specs in line. You did not mention the nitrrates so if above 5 ppm, I would start with some daily water changes with well aged SW to get it lowered. As long as it does not get an infection, it should be just fine.

Also be sure foods are fortified with Selcon or Zoecon.

Cheers
Steve
