Question Fin Rot Question

I was wondering how long it takes for a Betta's fins to grow back after being treated for fin rot. I was trying to decide how long to wait before giving him a second treatment.

Well, it really depends on the betta. As long as you are seeing even just a tiny bit of fin regrowth (which is clear) then there is really no reason to dose any meds again. If however, the fins seem to be getting worse, or just not healing at all, then a second dose may be in order. What are you treating with?

I used Maracyn. It's been a week since the end of the treatment and I don't see any improvement. He's a crowntail. I don't know if that makes a difference. Almost all of the shredded parts of his fins are gone except for some stragglers on the bottom.

You don't have any plastic plants or anything that he could tear his fins on in his bowl/tank, do you?

No they are not plastic. They are cloth I guess.

keeping up on water changes can also help.

Do you mean the dead tissue is falling off, or more is dying?

More is dying. I've since used Fungus Eliminator twice and he still seems to be getting worse.
