I got this picture from the web...




If it's the ventral fin, then yes, it will grow back.

If it's the pectoral fin, it may. I got mine with damaged pectoral fin, thinking it was damage from fighting, but it never repaired itself. It still swims with no problems.

Then yes, it for sure will grow back. I noticed one of my angels had one ventral fin shorter than the other. Odd, since I didn't know which fish could have done it, besides than the other angel. Although, the other angel only really just chases and pushes. Anyways, I did notice that it grew back to equal the size of the other.

There is a good chance it won't grow back. It might not have ever been there in the first place. Lacking one or both ventral fins is a common deformity in young Angels. If this is the case, the breeder should have culled the fish early on.
