Okay, I wasn't going to make a thread, but I'm thinking I should now.. so Nettle, my HM male, bit his tail fairly low in one place about two weeks ago. I had added salt to the water to give him a boost, but I checked in the other day and realized he had black at the end of his fin where he had bit it. I pulled him out immediately and put him in QT, added aquarium salt and kept an eye on him.
It's been about five days or so, and I don't see an improvement with his tail.. what's next to try? Should I keep using the AQ salt? His QT is unfiltered, so I change 100% every day. I've read of people using Maracyn, which I would rather not have to use, so what else can I try?
