After a week of having my betta, I noticed his long tail fin starting to fray at the top and a bit of black gank on it.
Immediately I though fin rot.
Ive dosed with API AQ salt to dose states on packet and dose of tetra medica General tonic.
LFS gave me the tonic free as I have only had him for just about a week and a regular customer.
They use this stuff and recommended it.
Tank is fully cycled, I did a 20% water change before dosing.
He has plants in there but they are silk and did the panty hose test (they did not snag or rip)
