I know that he is having symptoms of fin rot and i dont know where to start the treatment from. I have read fin rot related post, the first treatment should be aquarium salt, yesterday i ran to every pet store and fish store to find it but no one in my area has ever heard of aquarium salt
then i searched every market to find simple rock salt or kosher salt,,,, but cant find it any where..... but i saw a salt and it was without iodine but with 0.0006% soda
should i use that salt as treatment?
please anyone help me save my spikey's fins.....
(and yes, sorry about my english
