Keeping the light on 24/7 may stress him out.Leaving the lights on too long can also cause issues with algae after while..I keep my light on for around 9-10 hours. I turn them on around 9am and off around 7pm.
The best treatment for finrot is clean water and aquarium salt, 1 tsp per gallon pre-mixed in a water jug.
