Melafix him matey. Get it from your LFS.

And please do take out the offending rock, to avoid reprocussions.

My Sev did similiar some months back, I put him into quarentine, do you have the facilty ? it's amazing how quickly he will heal. Mine was nothing but a yellow ball of torn flesh, as when he was stuck my RT decided to eat him. Just hang in there and follow the directions on the bottle to the dot.
