Question: Right now I am treating my betta for fin rot. I panicked and medicated right away (not the best thing to do), but since it doesn't seem to bother him, I'm continuing the treatment as perscribed by the box. I was thinking of doing a salt bath afterwards, but would that be too harmful to the fish after medicating?

What do you do if the fish becomes unconcious.

I would say to remove the fish, and put him in a container of tank water.

Thanks SO much for this, Neenjar!! My walmart betta is still suffering from fin rot. He does great with the baths, and even gets really colorful afterwards!!

I treat my boys with salt water. I have Blue, Fishy and Merlin in a gallon of water with 1 tsp of aquarium salt. I change their water every day. I don't know if it's quite working yet. Gonna give it some time. Merlin seems lots better. Just taking a long long time with the fin rot on the other two.

That's great to hear. Are the fins still deteriorating or have they just not grown back yet? If the are still deteriorating I would look to stronger medication. If they have just not started growing back yet, then keep up what you are doing!

They were getting better, but then he got some frayed edges. They aren't getting worse, so I think it is really helping! He is such a wonderful little guy, and deserves the best.
