Basil's Fin rot is getting worse, and I don't know what to do next. When I first noticed it, i cleaned his tank really well, and started doing 50% water changes, then 100% and rinsing out the tank on alternate days, with aquarium salt. I did that for ten days, but it was still getting worse, so I started using Jungle Fungus Eliminator and Tetracycline. I'm on the third round of that now, and it actually seems to have accelerated the fin rot.
He's acting funny, now, too. He just sits by the thermometer in his tank. He sat so long this morning that I thought he had died! And it looks like he's having a hard time swimming! I don't understand it.
