My betta, Neo, is having the same issue. Needless to say I'm following this thread closely. Planning to wrap my filter and change to silk plants this weekend. Hang in there!

Hi - I am sorry to hear you are also having same issue. It is so frustrating!! Okay so I just went to pet store and they sold me T.C. Tetracycline; which I am now reading could be harmful. I have NOT added to his tank yet and will wait to hear some suggestions. Can someone please advise on this!

Thank You
Amanda

I'm not an expert on fin rot, but I remember some of the advice people gave me when my fish got sick. The salt treatment causes the infected fin ends to fall off, therefore "more shredding" may just be the fin rot being contained. Once all the black ends are gone, the process of fin regrowth starts.
