my HM has fin rot. :( i've tried everything i can think of - changed tanks from 1 to 2.5 gal, used aq salt, used maracyn 1&2, used tetracycline, used jungle fungus clear - its been 3 months. what am i doing wrong? i've read so many forum & online posts on fin rot i feel like my eyes are crossing! its slow rot, just steadily nibbling away on him.

i'm so frustrated and dont know what else to do. by all accounts this should be something simple to fix... but 3 months... i almost want to cry. i even got a plant that matches his color! he can't die!

2.5 gallon aqueon minibow tank, attached filter, 2 silk plants, half marble substrate, small heater, temp ~77 deg. F, pellets w/ occasional frozen bloodworm. 25% and 50% water changes alternating every other day. he swims around, eats and poops normally. can anybody offer any advice, please??

meet little Stir, my first real pet ever.

its not so much the coloring that bothers me (other than as an indication of rot), its the tears and rip. those little tears weren't there 3 months ago - the edge was pretty much smooth. then one appeared, and little v-shaped clear areas along the tip, and now there are all this little tears (see last picture)!
