Uggg, please help, I want to get rid of this stupid illness so Dante can grow his tail back
Perhaps it isnt fin rot, since youve treated with medicines and this has lasted that long? Is there something in his tank that is shredding his fins?
Are you certain you:
Used the AQ salt 1tsp/gallon-2tsp gallon (when progressed), with daily water changes and appropriate redosing?
Lowered the temp to 76-77'?
Shut the filter off, both to promote fin regrowth and to have the carbon not suck up your medicines?
What medicines did you use?
Perhaps try a broad spectrum antibiotic?
