Pudge's tail

I'm thinking I need to take an aggressive approach to this now. His tail is deteriorating from the INSIDE of his fins, so I'm starting to think it's fin rot that resulted from tail biting.

Pic from today:

He's had his tank switched TWICE, and he's been relocated t my desk. Has been through THREE salt treatments (10 days each) and stress coat.

If there's any other treatment I could use, please let me know.

I know API's triple Sulfa or API's Tetracycline can be used when salt treatments do not work. Also keep using stress coat with the meds to help promote growth. I hope his fins get better. it doesnt quite look like rot but also not like biting either now. like you said maybe the biting caused some rot.
