Fish fin repair

One of my fish tail is looking ragged due to another fish nipping at it. I purchased some api "beta fix" to try to fight possible infection. Also wasnt sure if the fin will grow back.
Anyone have experience with this?

Depending on how bad it is, yes, it should repair.



The most important things you can do are make sure the stressor is removed (nipping tankmate gone), and make sure you keep up on water changes so that the water is pristine. Bettafix can help, but clean water is the single most important thing you can do to encourage healing.
