I have a problem with my boy Nero, I came back from Holidays and found his fins are tatty and look like they're disintergrating....
I'm not sure if someone is eating them or if its a problem he has...
I have been dosing the tank since I got back (yesterday) with Melafix.

Should I use Multi-cure? I'm worried it will affect the others in my tank. I dont have a hospital tank, but was wondering if I could put him in a bowl for a few days and treat him in that seeing as it is coming into summer and quite warm?
If not maybe I just keep going with the melafix???
Oppinions and options are very welcome :)
