Hi Daniella,

Potassium permanganate is an oxidizing salt that is very effective for external issues. However, Mycobacteria often infects the fish internally as well as externally. It's thought (from the little that I've been able to find written about it) that the "graphite" coloration of the fins probably occurs due to tissue death as the internal organs begin to shut down.
