Unhappy Not getting better

Antubis is not getting any better. It doesn't seem like he is getting worse though. I've been giving one salt bath a day and cleaning his tank daily. I've been adding JFE and a little aquarium salt to his tank as well.
I'm wondering if I should start giving him more salt baths. I know part of the problem is not being able to regulate the temp in the quarantine so well. *sigh*

Castiel doesn't seem to be getting worse, but his fin rot is worrying me. I've been giving him one salt bath a day as well and I have added a little aquarium salt to his tank. He is in his filtered 5 gallon alone, so I left him in there. If he starts getting worse, I'll quarantine him too and get more aggressive with his treatments. I think I'll start giving him more salt baths daily along with Antubis to try to kick this stuff quick.

I think neenjar recommends 5 salt baths a day. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. I hope the salt baths help.

Up to 5 a day. 5 a day is hard to do if you work though, I can only do that on my days off. I get 2 a day on work days. How long has it been now? Have you been giving a full dose of JFE or partial? Heat could be an issue. I bought a mini heater for my quarantine tank, keeps it at 76.

I have possible other suggestions, but need the questions I posed answered 1st.
