What is the best meds?

For fin rot? I've never had a fish who had it, but I would just like to know what is the best medication for it.

Thanks,

I wholeheartedly agree with the user above me. I had a betta that had severe fin rot and I treated it with medications. And none seemed to be helping her, and if they did, she sure as hell didn't look like it was helping her. She was so miserable -- and she ended up passing away. I have a sorority tank now with 7 females, and it's inevitable that there is some occasional nipping going on. But with proper water conditions and some Aquarium salt (natural tonic for fish!), their fins grow back on their own.

I add a little ampicillin to my water and keeps nast bacteria out of my jars and tanks :)

Be sure to only use meds for fish (don't use people antibiotics!!!).
