Injured fish!

Hi,
So went away, came back couldn't see my fish thought he was hiding which he does (dwarf gourami) looked 2 days later and he was actually wedged in a hole of an ornament. (Now thrown away) he actually required my partner to pull him out backwards.
His dorsal fin is quite damaged and scales missing along his left side body and head, his tail is damaged too and the other gourami is nipping it. I tried to seperate him but he freaked out more and kept banging the glass so put him back with all the others and he settled.
I put in bactonex and bio safe which contains vitamin b to help stress as per advice from aquarium in the community tank as I don't have a suitable quarantine tank.
Anything else I should do?
Do fish finds and tails grow back?
He can still swim but slowly and sits on the bottom abit more than normal but is still eating.

Aww.. poor fishy. It would be best to isolate him if you can but if not, keep the water super clean and keep a close eye on him for signs of a secondary infection.

Yeh I tried to seperate him but he literally freaked and kept banging the glass. As soon as I let him back in with the others he settled and just followed the others.
