Leopard Danio Regeneration?
I have a shoal of 4 zebra danios and 2 leopard danios in my tank.
One of the leopards was ' the runt ' of the bunch, and he had what looked like a dent in his spine, much like a cats tail would look if it had been slammed in a door.
This little deformity made him the slowest danio in the shoal, and after a few weeks, the quick ones had nipped his tail clean off, down to the base.
A few weeks later I noticed that his tail is regrowing! he has gotten about 2cm of it back! He's gotten his speed and boisterousness back.
I want to know as much about this phenomenon as possible.
Is regeneration a known trait of danios? Maybe just leopards? Or any other aquarium fish in particular?
Does this only apply to tails? other fins? barbells?
Any knowledge is appreciated. thank you

Most fish will regrow fins if they are given clean water and peaceful surrounding (no fin nippers).People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

IME, my cory cat has grown back basicaly his while tail, but has never grown back his barbells. My shoaling fish have had their fins grow back before too.
