hi guys
i've had a betta for almost two weeks now.
i originally had him in a community aquarium but its fins got gobled up almost entirely by three clown loaches.
i moved him immediately to it's own"facilities" and it's been doing well so far.
I feed him properly, change water every three days and also put a drop of vitamins in the water once every 2 days.
The fins seem to be growing, however i'm a bit concerned.How long should it take for him to recover completely? is there any danger of fin disease?

It'll take awhile if they were badly nipped. Just keep the water quality good, and he should be fine...

i change the water every 2-3 days, i don't overfeed and the fact that he is constantly making a bublenest must be a good sign.
thanks. i'll post if anything goes wrong

Its a very good sign! lol
Water changes are the best cure unless your fish had the fins torn at the meat.Then meds are needed.
Usually just w/cs will help heal a fish.
