Clamped fins... Please any advice

I got my boy (riffraff) from a local petstore I bought him bc he looked so miserable in the small cup and he had clamped fins .. Well I've done everything I can think of ... Using aquarium salt making sure his tank is heated to a proper temperature clean tank... I just wanted to see if anyone had and advice to help me out ... They are not as clamped as when he was at the petstore ....

Sounds like you are doing everything right....he may just need more time-it can take several days to weeks for them to overcome the affect of poor long have you been treating him?

I would keep doing the aquarium salt 1tsp/gal leave in treatment along with the 100% daily water changes for a full 10 days-feed a high protein diet small frequent meals

Love to see some pics.....
