View Full Version : Cherry barb tail

Ok, first, I have a mickey mouse platy who had her entire tail ripped off by another fish, it grew back completely...I noticed one of my Cherry barbs has a nip out of her tail...will it grow back like the platy's?? I know they are totally different fish. The fish itself seems fine, she swims normal, and is eating normal and everything seems fine. I just wanna know if her tail will be whole again someday.

As long as she stays healthy and the water is good it will grow back.

Most fish will have their tails grow back after getting nipped or bitten.
Clean water is the trick!
If the bite is into the flesh of the fish then meds are probably needed.
