Does this work good/fast for fin rot?

I actually never used anything but AQ salt with my HM's finrot... clean, warm water will clear it right out.

And also no, "quick cure" is for treating ich, velvet, etc. not for treating damaged fins.

It says for "protozoan fin damage", which is not what finrot is.

I don't think it will.. like I said, clean water and some aquarium salt is usually the best course of action for fin rot. At least, in the experience I had it worked just fine.

Finrot is usually bacterial, not fungal.
