The short version:
I have done everything I can at the moment to help this fish, but he isn't getting better. Here are some pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/6237856...7628280220883/
I diagnosed and treated that as fin rot. But his fin is still rotting. Ahh! I used kanaplex and aquarium salt, and I even gave him a couple betta fix baths. I don't know what else to do.
