Exclamation Amaro with early signs of finrot?

As I've been observing Amaro, I think I am beginning to see signs of finrot. I may just be a little paranoid, and it may just be coloring, but the tips on his tail are beginning to look a little translucent. I will be heading to the pet shop Saturday (it's Tuesday) to get Angelfish and Snails as well as (maybe) some décor for Amaro's ten gallon he is soon to call home. I'll take some photographs when I return from my first day of high school tomorrow and try to get them up soon after. I've really grown on my little boy and don't want to lose him. Catching illnesses early on will help me keep my boy in check. What do you all reccomend for finrot? I am not turning off his light for the time being because the water grows very cold very fast. I'm worried he'll freeze to death. I feel him two freeze-dried bloodworms, and two Color Enhancing Betta Bits each day, and will be fasting him on Sundays. He gets one pellet and one bloodworms in the morning, and the same in the evening.

Also, my little boy flared up completely for the first time a minute ago.(:

Thank you,
British

Which one of the two Is reccomended around here? Should I treat him before moving him to the larger tank? What if I treat him with half the recommended dose because I don't know if he's getting it or not? I don't want to make him sick.

Try the Fungus Clear. I would treat him before moving to the larger tank.

Is the half-dose method okay?

You could try it and go to a full dose if it doesnn't work.
