Hi folks, hope all is going well. My crowntail seems to have a bad case of fin rot. His left side fin seems to be almost gone and he can only swim with the other side, it's sad to see him struggling but he's a fighter. I started him on tetracycline yesterday. I wanted to make sure to get him something that would treat a variety of illnesses just because he hasnt been eating well the past week or so and I have no faith in the shop we bought him at. He's in a 2 gallon tank right now and we're giving him the right ratio of tetracycline but he seems to also have a little white cottoney patch by his messed up fin, which worries me and leads me to my questions. Thanks in advance for your insights, I really appreciate the help.
- How many days should I continue the tetracycline? The box says 4, I think I'll go with that, but is it something I should continue until I see a change or is that dangerous?
- Should I be treating him with something else for what seems to be the fungus patch? Is the tetracycline enough, and if not should I be using something else in addition to or in place of what I'm doing now? Dont want to overmedicate but I want to treat the little guy as aggressive as we can so that he gets better.
