He just got out of his treatment for fin rot which was a tsp of salt in a gallon of water with daily 100% changes. I placed him in a new tank with treated water after cleaning everything and letting the filter run for a day. I started to notice that the nips in his tail appeared to be getting worse. My main question is what could be causing this?
