So my poor Ozwald has came down with fin rot. His normally large, circular pectoral fins are now long, rectangular...so he definitely is missing some bits. They're "clean cut", but definitely weren't cause by anything inside the tank--they just started becoming transparent to what they are now.
I'm removing him from his 10g (he's been in there for only 2 days) and placing him in the 1.5g for awhile until he improves. Now the box says to add 1 teaspoon per gallon. Should I just use 1 teaspoon for now just to make sure it isn't overwhelming for him? Then I know people say to only use it 7-10 days so it doesn't start causing internal damage... I think since I've caught this early it'll clear up rather quickly so I'm turning toward using salt for about 3 days and then just doing a water change every 2 days to keep everything pristine.
Does that sound like a good plan (even for a start) or what would you recommend?
Also, a bit of details about him and the tank he'll be in.
Ozwald is still active and eating well. Nothing aside the missing "pieces" of his pectoral fins have changed.
The tank is, as stated, 1.5g and is heated (stays about 77-81 degrees), however it isn't filtered (has a filter, I just despise it as a black "powder" flies out of it and I don't trust that for my tank).
If you need more information, just ask!
And thank you for the help!(:
