Does stuff like that grow back on fish? I think it'll just heal and leave a scar of some sort. If we were to lose a finger, we can't just magically grow another one. So most likely it'll heal up and leave a scar.

I don't think you want to treat him with anything (its not a disease, but there is a chance of secondary infection) so just keep the water up to par and make sure the trigger doesn't go after him again.

Fishboy, I know exactly what happened, my Huma used to do that to my puffers all the time. He never actually took a chunk out though, so I'm afraid I cant offer any advice for your Batfish.

Hope he recovers
