Tri-sulfa to cure fin rot?

I'm just asking for opinions on it since we're using it on my boy who has fin rot. We've secluded him in a jar and sat him in his tank but he's not looking to happy and by the looks of things? I might lose him.

Suggestions would great be appreciated.

Did you try clean, warm water, with more frequent water changes & maybe some aq salt before you went to the meds? Usually, meds are not needed for fin rot, I personally use meds ONLY when nothing else has worked. I've never used tri-sulfa so I can't speak specifically to it.

Yep, tried aquarium salt but it only seemed like it got worse and more black began to appear on his tendrils and some even ventured onto his body. We turned the heat up at first but since he shares the tank he's in we decided to seperate him and do a more concentrated dosage which didn't work either. So someone suggested the tri-sulfa and he has been really down. It seems like the black is turning back to normal colour or it looks like it's about to fall off so I'm not entirely sure which I should be worried about first.
