Thanks Sabina88. I took the pic to a Tropical Fish Store and they sold me Melafix to treat him with.I suggest clean warm water, and maybe add a little stress coat to help the fins heal.
How long did it take his fins to look like that.
Im not sure if its the lighting but I almost want to say that its not fin rot. Do the edges of the frayed part look like this at all?
ok, I will do that. When I re-did the tanks, they all got 100% water changes. The temp is at 78..think I should raise it to 80? How long should I wait to see if his tail improves before using the meds? Also, he likes to sit at the top of the tank where the slots in front of the filter are. Maybe I should put a piece of sponge in front of it or something? I noticed Marshawns are a bit frayed too, but he doesn't sit by the slots in his tank. I really think it may have been caused by the icky junk in the gravel.Your welcome
I would suggest trying the warm clean water first. And only use the medicine if you really need it.
