I would do daily salt baths. There's a thread for that in the Emergencies section. Do those about 5 times a day, or as much as you can. And if you think it's not getting better, then use the JFE.

Would it be possible if they could be treated in the same tank since they both have the issue?

Vikki, I was so thinking about mailing you some of the JFE! I've been thinking about what I would put it in! Haha!

Is this what you are talking about? http://www.gardenlink.com/catalog/im...earproduct.jpg
If so, I had some on hand, and treated my tank. I left them in the same tank, is that a bad idea? I have no quarentine tank on hand at the moment...

And what causes fin rot? Any other treatments? How long till I should see results? Thanks, I want my fish to get better!

Jungle Fungus Eliminator is what we are talking about. It's a bit stronger then that.

There are different things that cause fin rot, one of the most common is unclean water.
Salt baths are a great starter and it keeps you from starting them on strong meds if you can avoid it.
As far as a quarantine, you can pick up like a half gallon or a gallon tank to do the salt baths in.
I have half gallons that I picked up from walmart for $5 for purposes like that.
Good luck!

Okay and I don't have the salt... I can just get that at my local pet store? And is this usually easy to get rid of?

Aquarium salt should be at any local pet shop. It can be easy to get rid of if you catch it early and start treating immediately.
Oh, and a water change in their tanks would help a lot too. Maybe change 50% of the water twice a week or so until they heal.

Okay, I'll do a water change first thing tomorrow. Thanks for all your help! I might not have caught it without your guy's help!

I treated with the product I posted a picture of, should I just follow the directions and continue treating?
OR
One website I looked at said do a 100% water change, should I do this then treat with the aquarium salt, so as to "get rid" of the other product I used?

Thanks!!

lol really? Neenjars got that taken care of. Thanks for the thought though. It's nice to know people want to help out. I dont' know what I would have done about Ember, and now Fishy too.
You can get the aquarium salt at Walmart, that's where I get it. But if you want a bigger container, get it at a pet store. Hope everything gets better.
