Usually fin rot curls the fins and sometimes is black on the ends. It could have been the shrimp but it could be the tail biting. So it's kind of a hurry up and wait thing. But yea, all they really need if there is no fin rot is good clean conditioned water. And your welcome!

Keep yourself clean and bright, for you are the window through which you must see the world.

i know in regards to people, tea tree oil is SUPER drying when used pure. so i wouldn't use tea tree oil at all with my fish, especially if it damages their most vital organ!!!

i like fish and piercings and yarn
