I have been treating my betta for a while for a stubborn case of fin rot.
He has had Kanaplex/Furan2
Kanaplex/Furan2 again with added salt (1tsp per gallon) and methelyne blue baths.
These treatments have been over the past 2 mos (maybe 3). I recently finished up the Kanaplex/Furan2 and salt. His tank has transitioned back to fresh water with water changes every other day. The fin rot doesn't seem to have progressed. He also shows no signs of new tail growth.
Yesterday he had a fuzzy growth on his tail but it was tiny and broke off. This morning he has a little fuzz again where ideally he would be growing new fins and a fuzzy patch further down on some of his remaining tail fins that were damaged during hte fin rot.
I am hesitant to treat the water again with meds but will if it will help. I'm debating using a Jungle Fungus to cover the fungus side of things.
Any advice? His water parameters are clean and the temp is 80.
