Those are ventral fins. Where is it cut? It can grow back but if it seems completely ripped off, it may not be able to. Do frequent water changes to ensure excellent water quality allowing the ventral fin to grow back.

hmmm there is alittle bit left of it....i will do water changes and hopefully it will grow back.....if not will it affect the fish anyway in the future....one of my angels was missing half of his ventral fin and it grew back pretty nicely lol...
