no i dont use salt. adn if i were to would plain table salt work?
DONT DONT DONT use table salt! It can kill him. Most table salt have additives like iodide that are fatal to fish. Use aquarium salt that you can get at the pet shop.
I've seen people recommended 1tsp salt per gallon of water, 10 days at the most of salt treatment. After 10 days, go back to regular clean conditioned water. If fin rot doesn't clear up in 2 weeks, back on the salt for 10 days. Then back to regular clean conditioned water.
Hope he gets better soon.
