Add 1tsp/gal of aquarium salt and tannins either dried oak leaf or IAL
Steep for 1hour before use and shake well
Use this treatment water for 100% daily water changes for 10 days
Nutrition is really important to promote healing and fin growth...fed small frequent meals of a high protein food of several different pellets, flakes, frozen or best yet...live.....
Whats IAL? Where could I find those things or dried oak leafs?
Can I use just regular tap water or drinking water?
Is there any other type of meds I could buy from a LPS?
