Whats best to cure injured fins/scales?

I've heard of several products that help heal damaged fish due to aggression. I was wondering what everyone uses. Is there something that I could treat my whole tank with to keep my fish healthy. Its a 75G. Or do I just need to catch the injured fish and treat in a hospital tank. None of my fish are seriously hurt just some of them have a few nips here and there out of their fins from just being Cichlid's. They seem to be getting better on their own... I guess I'm just looking for something to help them along. Does such a thing exist?

For minor nips and rips in the fins between fin rays, time cures all! I've seen some ouches on one of our severums heal overnight. Good water quality, and slime coat promoting stuff helps.

If the poor fish is getting bashed up faster than it can heal, it's time to reconsider the stocking.
