Yes. The fins don't look like they have the symptoms towards fin rot so typically I wouldn't expect this to be fin rot. Especially since I have had somewhat bad experiences with those plants

The reason why I suggested this treatment is because if it's fin rot, your not actually doing the fish a ton of harm (as long as you dont treat them for a couple months). I always try this method first, most of the time it works just in growing back fins. My girl Velvet had her fins repaired in 3 days, and Patrick's fin rot was gone in a week and started growing back the next.

Thanks guys. I'll continue to treat him with the AQ salt. Hopefully I'll see new growth soon!

I took some more pictures today. I can't quite tell if there's any improvement yet, but I just wanted to update. Today is the 3rd day of changing the water and adding AQ Salt and Stress Coat+.

what'll happen is the super dark spots that is the fin rot should start to go away now and you should start seeing new growth over the next couple days

So I have a new update. I came home from work today to find a new chunk taken out of his tail. He only has one silk plant and his house in his tank so I don't think he's getting caught or torn on anything. I thought I was starting to see new growth yesterday but today it's gone. Does this mean he is biting his tail and that it's not fin rot? If that's the case, what can I do to get him to stop? It's the 5th day of the AQ treatment so I'm not sure if I should put in more then 1 tsp/gal or just continue with this. What can I give him to keep him occupied when I'm not home?

IF he is a tail biter, a larger tank and/or more decorations might help to keep him occupied and stop him from being bored.

I guess I'm still not 100% sure what is going on. He has some new growth but there's still a chunk of his tail missing. I believe he might be biting it because there's no black or white spots on him. I just bought 5 new silk plants so hopefully I can keep changing them so he's not bored. I guess my question now is: do I keep going with the salt treatments and if I do, do I keep using 1 tsp/gal or use more?

Thanks again, you are all so helpful!

it'll help grow back fins, which do start clear and then color up. Once he starts to look 100% again then I would stop.

Here are some pictures I took a few minutes ago.





I'm not sure if it's any better at all. After comparing the photos some parts look better and others look worse. I can't figure out if he's biting his fins (I've never seen him do it) or if he's getting caught on something. I have all new silk plants in his tank now so I'm hoping he's not bored. I'm still not sure if he has fin rot. I'm assuming he doesn't because he doesn't look or act sick and the fins look like chunks are gone rather than a fungus.

I also bought him a ping pong ball to float in the tank but he doesn't seem interested in it.

I will continues the 1tsp/gal every day but I'm not sure when I should stop doing that. I've been using it a week today.
