Talking Beginnings of Fin Regrowth(Yay!!)

All right, well Flapjack had a horrible case of fin rot which started last week and I was really freaking out. I administered a salt bath, oddly it seemed to get worse, so I resulted to medication. I tried out Jungle Fungus Clear, and it was Amazing!!! Next morning after the medication, I saw clear regrowth on both of his fins!!! I totally recommend this to anyone with a betta afflicted with fin rot!

Anyways, since the regrowth is still at a minimun, the package says after 4 days, you can readminister the medication with a 25% water change. So my question is, should I just continue the medication for 4 more days just in case, or stop??

If you're seeing regrowth and no more signs of the finrot,then I don't think you need to use any more meds. Just keep an eye on him.

ok, I wasn't sure if his caudal fin was getting some regrowth, but I was examining him today and I can see him minimal growth . So, everything seems to be well, just have to wait now

Yeah I'm using JFC and it works great too. Not working too great on Merlin's white stuff. I think I might give him a med break then try the stuff that I'm using for Fishy's Ich, because it says it's used for ich and fungus. Poor Merlin's had so much medicine used on him.

You know what I just noticed? I decided to take him out of the meds to see what would happen. I put him in the salt bath and put him back in his tank with clean water. And walah! I noticed it was gone. I don't know why it's suddenly gone. But I did notice it's a little red, like inflammed. So I decided to keep up with salt baths, and if it doesn't help then I'm going to try the meds I'm giving Fishy.

Yeah, sometimes just taking them out of the meds all together can do wonders. I'm so glad he's doing better!

Thanks! Glad your babys fins are coming back. Doesn't it make you so happy to see that the fins are growing back? I keep looking at Ember and smiling because it makes me so happy to see his fins are so close to normal again. Might take a bit longer to be EXACTLY like they used to, but it's getting there.

That's awesome!

How unfortunate for me that JFC didn't work AT ALL for my betta's fin rot D8

I might have messed it up though.....
Since my tank is much smaller than 10G that the tablet is meant for, I cut the tablet into quarters.
