Since Dionysus appears to have made a full recovery from his sbd/back injury ordeal, in the next few days I plant to start treating for the fin rot he seems to have developed. I know this means getting aquarium salt and removing the epsom salt from his environment. Anything else I need to think about before I start? Or, do you see anything else that looks like a big warning sign I should be aware of?
Here's the best photo displaying the rot:
Also, here are the pictures from this morning..
(Quick question. He's swimming and acting normally, but his fins are closed more often. They don't appear clamped, he is willing to open them and swim, but the top fin being so closed is different... Could it be related to the fin damage?)
I figured since this is a different issue, there should be a different thread. Don't want to clutter up the old one with too many pages making it hard to tell what's going on.
When switching from epsom to aquarium salt, should he go through a few days of clean water?
Also, I have a fear he is getting far to stressed from all these daily water changes. Before doing the AQ salt treatments, what if I move him to a larger container so I can do water changes less often so he has more privacy? Or should it all just be gotten through with right now?
Also, on that last pic..Is that a lump? Is it normal?
