Salt Treatment Q's

Okie dokie... Today marks the third day I've had my CT in a 'salt bath', after I noticed some pinholes in his caudal fin. He also had signs of new growth on the tips, so I figured a salt treatment would help.

I'm here today because I'm impatient.
I haven't seen much, if any, change in the pinhole situation.
How long should I treat this specific issue before changing my approach?

Also, he seems terribly bored in his salt bath tank. It's completely bare. Can I put ANYTHING in there with him? Maybe a fake plant or something? I don't want him to get bored and possibly develope a bitting habit. Ugh.

I still don't completely understand what may have caused the holes in the first place

All help will be greatly appreciated!! TY

I'm sorry this is so late but I think clean water would work just as well. Just change the water more frequently than you normally do for awhile.

The AQ salt can help prevent infections, daily water changes of plain water will work though

You can put decoration in it, I find it easier to just put a coffee mug and a silk plant though (easier to clean)
