I had to move my 3 fry to a fry breeding net to protect them from the other fish. Two had their tail fin nipped. They had been hiding in the floating hornwort but it has been breaking down lately. Is it a slow process for fins to grow back for fry? These I believe are glow light tetra fry, two are 1/2 inch long the other is a little smaller. I have had adult fish with fin damaged which seem to take awhile.

Do lots of water changes. When my fish have nipped fins larger more frequent changes help it heal faster :)
