I've had this happen once or twice (very LIGHT bleeding from a gash) and I've had quite a number of fish gash themselves without bleeding. I've had my Pictus break off a small section of the first spine of his dorsal fin, twice! His dorsal grew back, both times. In all instances I've not medicated but stayed on top of frequent water changes. I did 25% water changes every other day, once I saw improvement I lessened the frequency (never missing my 50% weekly). Good, clean fresh water goes a long way in healing an injured fish. Good luck to you and your fish!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
