Unhappy Fin Rot!!

Poor Charlie has fin rot and I have need treating him with salt baths and meds for about 36hrs. How long should it take him to start recovering and how will I know when he does?

Sorry instead of the word "need" it should be "been"

It may take a couple weeks. You'll begin to see regrowth of the fins.

Fin rot can be distinguished by the loss of the fins accompanied by black/brown edging that looks like the fin is rotting (which it is) You'll stop seeing the black edging and start to see regrowth, which will be clear growth. Just keep his water clean and add a bit of aquarium salt, or non iodized table salt to the water
