I threw in an extra water change yesterday and took out the one slightly rough plant. I'll be sure to keep a close eye on him. Hopefully it won't get any worse...
And just for the record, I have a thread with pictures here:
I used to have start right. Aloe is more of a gimmick, as for what I believe and a number of other members think.. It really doesnt do that much.
It's not going to heal your fish, though. But all-in-all its a fair conditioner and its made my a good company. Jungle has fantastic medicines at good prices, the only issue is that they really do work-- theyre very strong! :)
Your fish actually looks fine in my eyes.. I cant really tell where the issue is, even. I would say, considering that, just to have an extra water change for a few weeks and he'll be put right. If it gets way worse, then its an injury, rot or biting.
Btw, biting looks like little U shapes along the fins. You can see it on one of my fish's anal fin (he had it everywhere though), he was neurotic and chased it around all the time.
This is from rot (advanced rot) on a healthy fish.. It ate away huge portions of fin. It doesnt always have to turn brown, but when you encounter rot, you can usually tell.
Good luck :<
