I would float him in a cup in the ten gallon tank. Also get your hands on some good meds I read you have aq salt in there which is good keep up with that I would try maracide or something like that.

Don't use any kind of container where water flows thru -- you don't want to cross contaminate another tank.

i actually don't have aquarium salt in there quite yet...but i do have it handy..what's a good schedule for treating fin rot with it? should i do that and a med? or just try the aq salt at first?

I also have one of those 1/3 gallon kritter keepers...better than floating him in his cup in a ten gallon...should i float him in the kk in the ten gallon? or just try to treat him in his current planted home?

thank you all for your help, by the way! i really appreciate it!

Meg

I would do both with the way he is looking the kk will be easier to does with meds and the plants wont tolerate the meds or salt very well. Its best to float if you have the room :)

Thank you very much!

How much salt should I use in this case? and how often and how much water for water changes when treating with salt and meds?

Depends on the meds I like maracide because it doses in every other day intervals so I change the water before I add a new dose and I would use however much it says to on the package salt wise just replace it when ever you change the water
