Steer clear of medications ending in -FIX.

Also, please try not to lump all pet stores and pet store employees into one awful group. As a pet store employee specializing in fish, I find that to be quite offensive. I understand that you're frustrated, but please realize that not all pet stores and pet store employees are the same.

Most large-chain employees are given information from care sheets that are usually horribly incorrect. My recommendation is to try to find a local pet store (LPS) to go to. You might have more luck there!

Oy vey. I'm so sorry.

I don't understand how some employees can blindly accept information given to them about their so-called area of expertise and not do their own research!

I've had two fish with bad cases of fin rot... both I have treated successfully.

and sparta, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rc01p9T0DIc&feature=plcp before.
and now: http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/2653/spartaaaa2.png

With a heated one gallon tank, I did 100% changes daily, for a week. That's all I had to do to backtrack the damage that had been done...
