Prince Zuko fin :/

Here's a video of him swimming.

Price Zuko Youtube

I notice something wrong with his fins, but I'm not sure what it is.

How do I go about treating it the best and most efficient way?

They look ok to me except for a few tears and splits. Maybe he is damaging them on the plastic plants?

Replace plastic plants with silk plants and fresh water is the best medicine. Do more than the usual amount of water changes until you see some improvement.

It looks like he:

1. Tore his fins on the plastic plants in his tank
OR
2. Is fin-biting
OR
3. Has fin rot

I think it's likely 1 or 2, as the edges of his fins don't appear blackened/bloody like they would be with fin rot, though it's a little hard to tell from the video; he's an active little guy. :) Usually treating with aquarium salt, Stress Coat, and/or Indian Almond Leaf is recommended for all the above. Hopefully someone will come along who can give you exact instructions for treatment.

Hehe. I think your treatment suggestion is better than mine anyway. Clean, fresh water always helps, as well as being a nice and simple treatment. :)
