Question New boy has fin rot ??

Ok, so the new boy I brought home last night has some fin rot. What is the best way to treat it? Other than that he seems very happy and active.

Here are some pics to show his fin. Check out the bottom one. You can see the bloody and choppy fin. Poor guy.

He is beautiful...nice find...

I would do daily water changes for now, at least 50-100% while in QT, add aquarium salt 1tsp/gal along with daily water changes and you should see improvement in 3-5 days. If you have IAL or oak leave to add, this also would be helpful in healing and regrowth.
A good high protein diet to promote healing, I like to add fresh garlic juice to their food too.
