regrowing fins?

Posted by adamharbeck WA Aust (My Page) on

I have a new convict cichlid which has lost a piece of her pelvic fin in a tussel with another fish. Will this fin regrow or will it remain permanently damaged?

RE: regrowing fins?

Fins will regrow, but it takes time. As long as the torn fin shows no sign of bleeding, infection or fungus, in a clean water invironment and with good food, she should be fine.

But if she lost her fin to a tankmate, you should reexamine your mix of fish, because if she was attacked once, it may well happen again.
