My poor Indigo has fin rot. Just a very mild case. I put him in a one gallon hospital tank for the time being. I've put Prime, Stress Coat, and some aquarium salt. He also has been bloated for a few weeks. Not bad to the point where he can't swim, but he is kinda lazy. My question is can I add Epsom salt with all the other stuff I put in or should I wait until the fin rot is gone? And if I put Epsom salt in, how much?
