Anyone have any idea how soon the fins should grow back? I just want to know how soon I'll be able to put them in the tank.

It may take a couple of weeks.

Alright, I gave Antubis his first salt bath tonight. He did just fine in it. I hope things start looking better for him.

I'm glad he did alright with the salt bath. Hopefully, he'll be better soon.

I have another question, since its going to take Ember's fins a couple weeks to grow back, should I do another treatment with him? With the JFC it says to put the stuff in, wait 4 days then take out 25% of water and add more. So do I wait 4 more days, clean his water and then in a couple more days treat him again?

Vikki, you can move him out of the med tank into a smaller container with salt bath, then back to the med tank. i would administer salt baths daily.


Angelicscars, glad to hear Antubis took well to it, hopefully it will help him recover!

I've done the salt bath twice already. I haven't noticed a difference yet. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, since it isn't getting worse.
How long should I give him daily salt baths? Until he shows signs of healing? Until he is completely healed?
Also, a little off topic, but when will I be able to put him back in the divided tank with Anna? I don't want to put him in too early, but I also want to get him out of that 1/2 gallon quarantine asap.

I would continue the baths until he is about half healed or longer. I would also wait again until at least half healed, maybe 75% before adding back to the split tank.
