If he is bitting, no medicine will work. You need to fin the cause of why he is doing it - stress, boredom, fins too heavy, just because he can. Sometimes the more finned males, like halfmoons - will bit their fins because they are too heavy in which case there is nothing you can really do to stop him, other then keep the water clean. You may never catch him doing it, I have a few bitters and have never seen them bitting but they do.
This guy was a Halfmoon and he was a bitter till the day he died. RIP Sesshomarhu :(
Is it just his fins that look bad or is he acting differently as well? Does he still swim around alot or just float in one spot?
Hmmm,not fin rot ? I susupected he has fin bitting, but he has middle of red fin.
I mean fin rot are the edge is around black or red.
If he bitting his fin, the edge is turned red ? He has melt his other fin.
Yes, he is halfmoon, and his fins are too hearvy I think.
I show female, and he has flare. But he didn't make bubble net. And I guess he is in sick.
Is that right ?
Right now, he is in my hospital tank 1/2 gallon. He swim, and when I appear he come to me.
I am so sorry for hear that you lost fish.
Thank you for your advice !
