As long as it's not advanced and you're treating him properly and caught it in time, he'll most likely be okay. =] I can't say for sure, though.

You can up the does of aq salt to 1 tsp/gal to add a little more help.

And as far as fin rot goes, how bad are his fins for you to be worrying this much?

Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Clean water, aq salt, and high protein diet seems like the best treatment. Unless a high dose of aq salt (I'd say 3 tsp/gal max) and water changes doesn't work, then you could probably think about medications to help out.

as long as it doesn't reach his body, he shouldn't die from it.

Looks more like biting, but he'll be fine.

I had a few senior members say it was fin rot, does the AQ salt treatment work either way??!!

My crown tail Ratchet bites the top half of his caudal fin. He's got more webbing than a crown tail technically should have, but he's definitely a crown tail.

Either way the aq salt will help keep infection away and encourage healing. It's safe to use it for missing scales, fin rot, tail biting, ripped fins, and mostly everything else that is external.
