Okay i'll bump it up to 80 and see if it heels any faster, i remember reading somewhere that if the water is warmer it speeds up their metabolism.

If you are using antibiotics to treat the fin rot then bumping up the temp a bit to boost the immune system is fine - I wouldn't go higher than 82 tho. If you're not treating with antibiotics then it's not recommended to bump up the temp because bacteria, which is the cause of fin rot, thrives and multiplies faster in warmer temps.

Thanks for that info ,i did not know this, it is currently set at 78 do you think dropping it to 76 is okay .I am not treating with antibiotics ,i did as OFL told me salt for 10 days and IAL leaves,i do have marcyan 2 just in case but i don't think i will be needing it he seems much better.

I would just leave it as it is and keep a close eye on him. Water change are one of the best ways to treat many illnesses.
