Please help me decide about medicating

Sorry, if I'm been asking too many questions lately... but I'm torn between trying some medicine for LuckyBlue and if I do which kind...

I have both Revive and Triple Sulfa on hand..

I do now believe he has some sort of fin rot..as his fins are altogether disappearing he continues to swim and eat just fine, but I believe he needs help.

Please, Please, just some advice so I can make my decision.

I know he is just a fish, but I so LOVE him for some reason.

You could just try using AQ salt for mild fin rot, 1 tsp per gallon :)

You can never ask too many questions in my opinion, the more you ask about, the more you'll know, and the less you'll have to struggle figuring out on your own ^^
Most of us (if not ALL of us) each love our fishes, you're not alone :)

I agree, start with conservative treatment. Put him in a heated 1 gallon container and add 1tsp. aquarium salt per gallon, with daily 100% water changes to keep the level of salt consistent. Make sure the salt is fully dissolved before you add it. Treat for up to 10 days and let us know if he's improved.
