Question How long to heal from fin-rot

Anyone know how long it can take for fish to heal from fin-rot? I have two nickle-size angels recovering from fin rot (had it when purchased). Treated and seems to be eradicated now, but I'm wondering how long their pectoral fins may look ragged.

did you add medication? if not try adding Lifeguard by Jungle and API's Melafix will help also!

Thanks, already medicated and the treatment has ended. Now I'm trying to clear the meds out of the tank. (water changes and carbon in the canister filter.)

Healing of fins takes no time at all, a week or so if infection has gone

Thanks, that what I was wondering. The fins were pretty far gone (I'd say about 75% on one angels pectoral).
