Firefish top fin bitten off.

It looks like his top fin was bitten off by either my 6 line or clowns. It looks like it was ripped off clean so I'm assuming it wont grow back. Can anyone confirm this?

If the bone is missing it won't grow back. It should heal though as long as the water quality is high. Be very wary of infection...

Cheers
Steve

Ya I don't think it will be growing back, the fish seems fine. Such a shame, I really liked how that fin looked when it stuck straight up.
